Guest Posted January 31, 2005 Share Posted January 31, 2005 I've been browsing your site for a while and it has given me a lot of hope. My fiance Greg (42 y/o) was diagnosed in September with Stage IV. We thought he had pneumonia when they did that chest x-ray and found a HUGE mass in his chest. By the time he had a biopsy he was having trouble using his right arm. Turns out he had 2 tumors in the brain. Greg was always a chain smoker and proud of it. He told me he would gladly give up cigarettes if he could get back the use of his arm. After 10 WBR treatments and a lot of praying he can once again write his name. AND he really did stop smoking!!!! He has now undergone 3 chemo rounds with carboplatinum and taxol. We are not sure that its working and will do a CAT scan in the next two weeks and check. Thanks so much for this site and all the people who contribute to it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
