  1. Hi, thanks everyone for your emails! I haven't logged on in a while! My dad was about to start chemo (the type wasn't confirmed) and he then called me and said "I can fight this without the chemo. I have a strong will to live, I have to much to do still and this is not going to stop me. He really has no symptoms that's what's so strange! No symptoms honestly; so it's really difficult to believe. I have been torn with this all. I wish I knew what was the right thing to do. He asked me what would you do and I honestly couldn't give him a truthful answer! I told him whatever you decide I am by your side...it's your body. He then replied my heart is telling me not to do it. I just hope we/he will not have regrets later. I am so confused! I really can't picture my life without him! I just hope that his strong will to live, his strong mind can help him get through this! He keeps saying Chemo for life is not a way of living, I've decided to live with my own mind/body and heart. I will have a good conversation with my dad but I can't right now...I don't want to damper his spirits. He's been giving me strength as weird as that may sound. Really, thanks again for your posts and reaching out. I hope that you're all doing well
  2. Hi, my dad recently has been diagnosed and he doesn't want to do the treatment the Dr has suggested...Chemo. He feels fine and wants to fight this without treatment. He wants his quality of life. Please someone tell me what is right from wrong, help me understand what would be the best choice to do the chemo or not to. My dad currently looks and feels fine. I'm so confused. I don't want him to suffer. He's my rock and I can't picture my life without him Thank you all and god bless you!
  3. Hi, I'm so happy to be part of a support group! We were told my dad has Stage IV lung cancer. The DR basically told us it has spread to his lymph nodes. He has to do chemotherapy...will know which one exactly when we meet the Dr. next week. Funny thing is my dad looks and feels the same as he did last year and the year before etc... He is in complete denial. He doesn't want to do chemotherapy because he thinks it will kill him sine he is currently feeling good. I'm trying to be strong but I'm a complete mess! my dad is my rock and I can't picture my life without him. I don't even know what questions I should be asking his dr. This is all a shock, I can't stop crying and feeling down. I just want this to go away. One extremely positive thing is my dad has such a strong will to live but I'm afraid he looks at chemo like it's the worst thing ever and I'm worried it will make him loose that will to live. Any advice, anything at all would help...I have no clue what we're dealing with! I don't want to force him into anything. he's afraid because he's heard the negative stories of people who have passed regardless of doing chemo. But he hasn't heard the positive ones! That is why I am so happy to have found this site. Thank you all for listening!
