AdaW Posted July 28, 2003 Share Posted July 28, 2003 Dear Friends, Two years ago I was diagnosed with Stage IIIA NSCLC. It's been a roller-coaster with many ups and many downs. I've learned a lot, some of which I did not want to know. Mostly I've learned that I am very lucky to have the love of a devoted husband, children, family and friends. The biggest surprise is that I learned that I can still find joy and happiness in my life eventhough I have a life-threatening disease. Two years ago, I never thought I would be here. Right now, eventhough I've been through the mill lately, I am functioning and happy and still believe that I could go into remission if they could find something that works for me. I have not lost my faith that I still have a wonderful life to live. Tomorrow (Monday) we will travel to Nashville to meet with Dr. Anthony Greco and his colleagues to see if I qualify for any of their clinical trials. I hope so. I at least need to get started on something because I am having trouble with my hip and am finding it difficult to walk--even with a cane. I am still on clinical trial lists in Pittsburgh, but my name isn't coming to the top of the lists very quickly. I hope to be eligible for some cutting edge medications. Several oncologists have told me there are very promising clinical trials out there right now. I'll keep you posted. I'll be thinking of all of you. Take care.
