    • Do not let the term aggressive fool you.  While in the ICU for because mine for more aggressive than any seen or heard of at about 2 am an oncologist sat down beside me after starting my first chemo.  He said he knew I had to be scared with the days events and it was indeed more aggressive than he would have ever imagined cancer could be.  He then said in his experience aggressive Cancers that respond to treatment tend to respond just as aggressively as they grew.  He was so right.  My cancer responded faster than they thought was possible.  After my first infusion of keytruda is was 12 days and an metastasis on my neck was 100% gone.  I could see the one in my neck was either gone or at least too small to notice. It was bigger by an two hands held in prayer 🙏. ROS1 can be aggressive, but it's also associated with better overall survival.  Alimta, plus chemotherapy with addition of a TKI should be very very effective  since ROS1 positive Cancer tend to respond well.   Good luck to you and your family.  Hopefully you guys get a break and some good News soon.

    • Hello all, it has been ages since I posted, I miss this forum. I hope you all are well! I am doing well so far, next scans coming up in 2 weeks and scanziety at peak. I have been unable to post as my mental health has been reeling. Too many family members suffering serious health issues, to say it was extremely hard is an understatement. Latest my dad, 78, has been diagnosed with lung cancer, adenocarcinoma ROS1 mutation. Any of you has this mutation? I am gutted. You may remember my own adenocarcenoma is EGFR exon 19. I am in deep shock thinking irrational things like fearing for my son having mom and grandpa having lung cancer and thoughts of future risk for him. I know ROS1 is an aggressive mutation but also know there is targeted therapy. Dad has other lung issues due to previous open heart surgery, fibrosis and smoking damage so probably surgery is not an option though his one lone module is small, under 2cm, no other evidence of cancer. I have no idea what to tell him! Any tips?
