  1. Hi all, I'm reaching out in the hope to get some hope. My family and I are in the doom and gloom stage of a recurrent cancer diagnosis. My mom just received her 1 year "all clear" in April, but continued to have trouble breathing and had a terrible cough within the year after her treatment. She had her upper, right lobe removed and went through chemo and radiation for 12 weeks because the surgeon was unable to remove an all of the cancerous cells in her lymph node (which he wasn't expecting). She just had a biopsy Friday of a tumor on her right bronchial tube. Her pulmonary doctor was 90% sure it is cancer and the same type she had before, but we are still awaiting final word that it is cancer and what kind. We are so deflated. This is worse than the first diagnosis. It all seems so final now, that there is no hope. I am a planner, so I am obsessively searching the internet to see if it's possible to have the tumor surgically removed (her pulmonary doctor says no) and if you can have radiation in a similar area as before. We are old school thinking so we think we always need to cut the cancer out of us and are so afraid to hear that surgery isn't an option and possibly not even radiation. So them I'm left with the question of whether or not to trust immunotherapy (something that goes against my old school thinking). I am so desperate to hear that it's all going to be okay, but am scared that it isn't going to be. I hear a lot about 1st time cancer survivors, but not a lot about 2nd time survivors, something that scares me even more. I know that at the end of the day I will pull myself together and help my mom get through this, but my biggest fear of losing her too soon seems to be coming true. Anyway, that's my current situation and my very sad introduction. I am looking forward to reading hopeful and helpful posts to help me get my mom through this trying time. Steff
