  1. Tomorrow it will be 10 years ago that Henk was diagnosed. The dx was Pancoast tumor, adeno, stage IIIB. Inoperable. His doctors thought Henk wouldn’t survive. They advised against a (possible curative) chemo/radiation treatment, because the chances of survival were very small and the chemo and radiation treatment would be very severe. Also, they thought that Henk might be too old to survive the treatment. However, Henk decided he had to try. The treatment was very severe indeed. But he survived not only the treatment, but also the LC. At the moment, Henk (81y) has some health problems, but these problems are not LC related. The input and support we had from this LC forum was very important. It’s here that we found some HOPE. Here we learned that a pneumonia vaccination exists. This was very important for us because at the time Henk had pneumonia several times a year. It’s here that we learned a lot of other things about LC, possible treatments, medication etc. We thank you, Katie, and all the other people who work and worked to keep this forum on the internet! Henk and Ellen.

  5. Thanks everyone! Today we are celebrating 5 years since dx. Five years ago, Henk docs gave him 6-12 months at most. Ellen.
  6. Henk had his 6 month chest X-ray today. All clear, NED. The doctor congratulated him and said is't highly unlikely that the LC will come back. It's 4 year and 9 month since diagnosis and 4 year and 4 month since last LC treatment. Thank you all for your support! Ellen.
