JulieClark Posted July 16, 2003 Share Posted July 16, 2003 Hi all, It's so comforting to be in this community of others who understand... I'm Julie, and I still consider myself new to the journey of lung cancer. My Mom was officially diagnosed on June 11 of this year, after a brain MRI found 3 brain tumors and a chest CT scan found hundreds of tumors. The oncologist told us that all treatment is pure palliative and will hopefully extend her life from 6 months to 2 years. She noticed a lot of improvement with brain radiation and will begin her Taxotere/Carboplatin chemo day after tomorrow. I live an hour and a half away and leave my 9 and 11 year old children with my husband every other week and go spend time helping mom. I am so torn and feel like I've walked into a nightmare. What can I expect? How do I keep my sanity? Thank you all for being there! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
