yvetten Posted March 8, 2007 Share Posted March 8, 2007 Hello all: I joined many months ago but I haven't posted until now, for some reason. I have been reading your posts for months now and I feel as if I know so many of you so well! I almost feel like I have been evesdropping on you all for months Well, the reason I joined is, as you can see from my profile, my Dad has stage iv lung cancer. To say the least, what a total shock--never smoker, health nut, did yoga--the last person you would think would get cancer. We think it was environmental/chemical because he was a shoemaker/shoe repairer for many years. It has been such a heartwrenching journey so far, and it is certainly not over yet, I know. My family is so heartbroken. I am an only child and have always been a daddy's little girl. I am just glad my Dad got to walk me down the aisle this past summer. I can't imagine life without my Dad. I pray for you all daily. We have had some good news but we have a meeting with the ONC on Friday following scans after the last chemo treatment (ended Feb. 9) and are praying for even more good news (maybe liver improvement)?? So, anyway, I am officially introducing myself--hi all! You have already all helped me so much! I especially want to thank Ernie for reaching out to me in the begining (I responded to his story) and giving me so much hope. Ernie, you rock, and by the way, I emailed you a while ago with an update on my Dad. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH--WHAT A WONDERFUL SITE! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
