Hi, my name is Shirley W,I am a lung cancer survivor , My cancer

has been in remission for 16 months now. The road has been tough

to get to this point, I have had surgery,doctor had to remove part of

the right lobe when they removed the tumor. Also had chemo and

radiation,also had a after cancer drug. Just had a cat scan done last

week and scan said that I am still cancer free,Thank You God'

Welcome to this message board. You will find that there are so many great people that post on this board. Your clean scans is wonderful news....... You are truly a survivor, God Blessed you, he is so good to us.

What state do you live in? I hope you don't mind me asking, what stage was the cancer, what type of chemo did you have and how long and how many treatments of radiation did you have? Did you have chemo and radiation at the same time and then have surgery or did you have surgery and then chemo and radiation. Also was it nsclc or sclc?

Please keep us posted about how you are doing. You are such an inspitration to all of us. We are all survivors and will continue to fight and beat this ugly monster.

Praying for a "CURE" for all of us.....

God Bless



Dx'd 3-03, 3a - NSCLC

Radiation 3-25-03 to 5-15-03

Taxol/carbo 4-1-03 to 5-20-03

Started Taxol/carbo again 7-23-03 (every 3 weeks) for 6-8 cycles
