Hi beat it and welcome,

So sorry that you and your family are facing the possibility of lung cancer. I have very little in the way of advice, but I am certain many others will be along shortly with a wealth of information to help you out. Please read around the good news forum. There are many survivors and care givers stories that will give you great inspiration, hope and information.

My very best you to you and your family,

I'm very sorry you had to find this board, but you will be very happy you did. I also live in Minnesota and my Dad saw an Oncologist at the UofM Masonic Cancer Center. He saw Dr. Dudek, but there are a few doctors there that specialize in Lung Cancer. We were very happy with his care. Another possibility is the Mayo Clinic. We were told that the UofM is actually more advance on Lung Cancer research than the Mayo. I hopeyou hear good news and don't have to continue your research. Let me know if I can help in any other way.
