Mally Posted March 8, 2017 Share Posted March 8, 2017 I was googling survival rates and read that breast cancer has a 99% five year survival rate and lung cancer has a 15-30% ...that was a downer and my mum beat leukemia when 68 yrs old when told she had a 15% chance of staying in remission but 3 yrs passed with no recurrence so cured the oncologist said but at age 72 she got nsclc adenocarcinoma which was a primary tumor and had her lung removed and 3 yrs later mets to other lung and no treatment and lived another 4 yrs and passed away almost 80 yrs old .diabetes and heart disease and age and having gone through chemo for the leukemia they thought more treatment wasnt wise because of her general health But she stayed positive through it all which is what im trying to do and this forum has helped me see there is hope to survive past the 5 yr mark but was wondering what your thoughts are on these statistics ...Tom Susan ...Lauren .?..and others that are going through this journey Sent from my SM-N920I using Tapatalk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
