Daughter of Father with Stage IV Lung Cancer

Recommended Posts

Hi. My name is Alicia. I am 29 years old and my father was diagnosed with Stage IV nsc Lung Cancer in May 2006. He never smoked and had been healthy until November 2005 when he started showing symptoms of SOB and wheezing. I hope you all can give me some advice as I've read through previous post and you seem very supportive. I will post a message updating the events as of late as well as my questions. Thanks.

Welcome, Alicia! My wife also was Stage IV NSCLC and given 9 months. She actually lived 4 years and had a productive life. So hang onto the hope and faith. Keep us posted on your dad and let us know what your questions are. Don

Welcome Alicia,

Sorry to hear about your dad's diagnosis. I am also diagnosed with stage IV NSCLC (last Dec.) and have gone through 6 rounds of chemotherapy (finished May 2006), and am now in remission. The most important thing to remember is that no matter what the doctors say - do not give up hope. So many have been told by the doctors that they were beyond hope and they are still here alive and kicking (cancer's butt). There is a lot of information and support here. Hope you are able to find some comfort on these boards.

God Bless,

Sharon
