    MBinOregon got a reaction from Ann Cronin in Predicting Doom   
    On 12/20/2017, when the pulmonologist came into the room and said "It's bad. It's cancer" then proceeded to give me the diagnosis of Stage 3, I naiively asked her about the survival rate.  She said "15% survival rate in 5 years" and I believed it.  What she told me sounded like "you will die at any moment!" - I went home and wasn't sure if I should write the will first or start cleaning out my house.  Shortly afterwards, I found this forum and started reading the threads and your comments on these "statistics" resonated with me the most along with "if I can survive it, so can you" comment.
    Thank you, Tom, for being my and all others' wind beneath our wings (pardon the cheesy-ness).

    MBinOregon got a reaction from KatieB in 10 Steps to Surviving Lung Cancer from a Survivor   
    Tom, I read this originally after my initial post on the newbie topic back in January this year.  I found your reply to my post highly encouraging and all your articles quite "sanguine" as you put it 😊  7 months (and a lot of treatments) later, I'm reading it again and it's still good, if not better.  Thank you.
