    Patti B

    What a grand lady Patti was and her strength & faith are an inspriation for all. My condolences to you & your Dad.
  2. Judy, I am so sorry to hear this. My condolences to you, your sister & whole family. This is so heartbreaking and I will be sending prayers for all.
  3. I think it's great that Dr. Oz wants to talk about this. As a never smoker that got lung cancer I know that most people think it only happens if you smoked. Physicians & the general public needs to be educated about other causes so more people can get an early diagnosis as I did. I was blessed to be treating with an environmental physican who ordered a CT for a persistent cough as I had a previous an toxic exposure. Most PCP's would not have done this.
  4. Katy, My condeolences & prayers are with you.

    Susan, I am so saddened by the passing of your Mom. My prayers are with you & your family.
  6. Hi Mary, Welcome. Stage 1 does give you a great chance for a cure. Find put what procedure they intend to use. Recovery from surgery will depend on whether you have a VATS procedure as Bruce did in the previous post or a thoracotomy. The recovery for VATS is much quicker than if you need a thoracotomy. I had the latter in May 07 to remove my right lower lobe. I was stage 1A. I was in the hospital for 6 days and off work for almost 6 or 7 weeks. Good Luck,
  7. My condolences to Jill's family & friends. What an amazing young woman.

    3 Years

    Hi Everyone, Exciting week for my family & many prayers have been answered!! My son, Todd, received great MRI results earlier this week. 4 1/2 years since his diagnosis, surgery, radiation and a year of chemo and he has been released from care at Henry Ford's Brain Tumor Center. AMAZNG!!! Yesterday I got my CT scan results. Stable! No lung cancer and the darn inflammation (sarcoid) I have had for a few years now is finally now under control.... 3 years cancer free & no more prednisone. And very exciting is that I have graduated to scans every 6 months instead of 3. YEAH!! I am ha
