Maryanne Posted June 2, 2005 Share Posted June 2, 2005 I don't know if you noticed but we seem to have a few new young people on this site that have stage IV and are non smokers. We have Dart (young Skywalker) who is almost 27 Mike husband of Kim who is 33 Cait newly married whose husband is 34. I can't imagine what is going on... I am just wondering if this disease could be genetic... I am just baffled that these young ones are diagnoised at stage IV. I hope this is not going to be some kind of new epidemic. Then there are the people that smoke like chimmeys their whole life who never get this disease. My husband found out his biological father died of LC, and he had stopped smoking over 40 years. I just think there is more to this disease than smoking. Anyway, I feel for these young ones, as they have their whole life ahead of them. It is so unfair to get this being so young. Of course, it is not fair at any age, but that is just too young. It's my kids ages.. They should be out there having fun, enjoying life to its fullest, instead of being scared and having to go through all this bullsh--. Just sounding off, but this concerns me.
