  5. Hi, Sunshine145,

    We're glad to hear that your mom is on an effective treatment, but we're sorry that the side effects have been so rough.

    The causes of cancer-related fatigue are not fully understood. It may be the cancer and/or the cancer treatment. Here is an article from Moffitt Cancer Center with information and tips on cancer-related fatigue: https://moffitt.org/take-charge/take-charge-story-archive/cancer-related-fatigue/

    And here are some additional tips from the oncology nutrition specialists at Savor Health: https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/blogs/voices-from-the-community/fighting-fatigue-during-cancer-treatment

    We hope that you and your mom are doing well. Please post an update when you can!

    With gratitude,

    Lauren

  7. Hi, Angelo,

    Just wanted to check in and see how you and your wife are doing?

    Here is a link to information about different types of treatment for Stage IV NSCLC: https://lungevity.org/for-patients-caregivers/lung-cancer-101/treatment-options/treatment-options-for-non-small-cell-lung

    Content in LUNGevity's Lung Cancer 101 website is reviewed and approved by the LUNGevity Education Editorial Board, consisting of pulmonologists; medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists; pathologists; and physician assistants from leading institutions, as well as experienced patient advocates. 

    Has your wife had biomarker testing? For some kinds of lung cancer, comprehensive biomarker testing may provide information on whether there are changes in the cancer cells that can be treated with targeted therapies or immunotherapy. These therapies can be highly effective for patients with treatable biomarkers. You can find more helpful information here: https://lungevity.org/biomarkertesting

    Please post an update when you can. We are here for you.
