Welcome to the board. Please tell us more about your mom. There may be other options open to her such as radiation. My MIL was in her 80's upon diagnosis and elected to have her tumor radiated and no chemo, she led a good life for 2 more years and died from a stroke- not the lung cancer.

Please let us know more about your mom - Ry is right - there may be other options available for her.

Feel free to come here and post any question or if you just need to vent - we will be here for you.

Welcome to the board,

Let us know more about your mom and why she opted out for treatment. Lung Cancer is not a death sentence and one can live with it for many years and still have a life. They have come a long way in treatments and meds to offset side effects. As long as there is life there is hope! Again welcome.
