  1. Thank you all so much for your help! It has been hard keeping up with the avalanche of information and appointments so I apologize for not responding individually. I have the prelim results and have EGFR so will start Tagrisso soon. Fingers crossed. Thank you all and best to you all as well. Curry
  2. Thank you all for your thoughts. Thank you for taking the time to thoroughly explain things and share your experiences. It is so hard having to navigate finances and deal with cancer at the same time and I hope I can find the strength you all have. Yesterday I found out I have brain mets too. I've been set up with a social worker. I'll continue to listen and learn from all of you. Thank you all so very much. Curry
  3. Hello, I've been waiting for a diagnosis to reach out to a support community. I knew the only way I could get through this is knowing that I am not alone in this. After 2 months of tests and runaround I finally received a gut punching stage IV NSCLC w/ bone mets diagnosis at the age of 38. They are going to do some genetic screening so I could possibly do targeted therapy, radiation, chemo.. I mean, how did I get this deadly cancer? If it is genetics does an environmental factor have to trigger it or does it just start growing? Do I go on long term disability? Does anyone have any experience with Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa? I'm currently in VT but if this is what I'm facing I want a better and warmer quality of life. I finally found my life partner, landed a good job, had a sunny future...now I can't even sneeze without fracturing my ribs and I'm getting a scan on Super Bowl Sunday to see if this stuff is in my brain too. Thank you for listening and having this forum.
