Guest ekim4got Posted December 12, 2003 Share Posted December 12, 2003 Hello, I am a newcomer to this site and I must first tell you how overwhelmed I was as a I read through many of the posts. The courage, caring and determination evident in your messages is truly amazing. If anyone were searching for a hero, one would cartainly find hundreds of them here. My Father is newly diagnosed with SCLC. He is 74 and in relatively good health otherwise. As nealy as the doctors can tell, his cancer is limited to his chest which I understand to be a good thing as it relates to his prognosis. Fortunately, he has access to very good care and he begins chemo next week which will be followed by radiation. As is the case with many of his generation, my Dad doesn't like to ask for help or admit to needing assistance of any kind. Nevertheless, I know he would benefit from some sort of dialouge with people who are going through and have been through similar situations. He's a smart, insightful guy, he writes beautifully and enjoys communicating via email. I would appreciate any advice from any of you as to how I might help get him connected with an individual or group. Obviously, getting involved with a group such as this would be great, I just need to figure out how to get things started. He's a tough nut to crack if you know what I mean. Thanks in advance and I wish all of you the best. Mike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
