My hubby of 19 years, Jeff was diagnosed with stage 4 NSCLC on July 31, 2015. He has the EFGR mutation and is responding well to Tarceva. He is 49, never smoker. He has three tumors in his lungs and a page and a half of mets in his bones! Lots of tumors. He lost 35lbs and he was already a lean bean. I tell you all this, so you know there is hope. He was in bed for two and a half months. Two days ago he was climbing a ladder and swinging a hammer. He was on 75mcg of Fentanyl and now is is NO pain medication. We are LIVING and fighting. We are hopeful of long term disease management. We know the Tarceva is critical but we also know LOVE, fresh air, positive thoughts and respect for the cancer has given him extra strength to fight harder. Our wish to all who battle this awful disease: is that you all find the good in your situation. Look for it; it is there. This is life changing and you can change for the best. Thanks for reading!

I am: a loved one of someone with lung cancer
