Hi there! I'm Heather and I was diagnosed with Stage IV ALK+ lung cancer at 34 (4 whole years ago!) and after disease progression in 2019, I came away from that experience with a fire to advocate for lung cancer research, to change the face of what it looks like to be a lung cancer patient and to generate discussion about a healthy way to bridging the gap between Western medicine and body, mind + soul wellness. Since then, I started a blog Living Lives with Lung Cancer to foster a space for these conversations with my fellow patients. It's been totally life changing for me to take the things I learned (and I was slow on the pickup) and to share them with anyone and everyone who will sit still. I truly believe that as a cancer patient, you should be invited into your own healing and health journey and that you should continue to grow and evolve and live your life to the fullest as your true authentic self. Body, mind and soul! Looking forward to learning and talking to you all!
May2 Age: 42 Recently Diagnosed 1/16/2020 NSCLC RET Mutation, stage IV. Currently I am on Keytruda,immunotherapy. Started my first treatment two weeks ago, I am scheduled for my next treatment next Friday. Doctor said to do my scans 2 weeks after my second treatment of Keytruda. If there is positive response we will continue. If Keytruda is not effective he will add chemo. Hoping Keytryda will have a positive effect. 🤞🏻🙏🏻🤲🏻🤲🏻 Let me know if you relate....
I was diagnosed 4 weeks ago and just found out results of molecular testing yesterday. Only mutation identified is MEK which I understand is rare in NSCLC. Oncologist is working with cancer center to determine next course of action. Anyone who has this mutation or any experience with it I would really appreciate communication. Thank you, Anne
