Karin Posted March 29, 2017 Share Posted March 29, 2017 Hi I am Karin, I am a NSCLC Stage IIa survivor. I was Diagnose last May, had all tests and scans and ultimately surgery in June followed by 4 cycles of chemo from July-September. I tolerated the treatments well and feel absolutely wonderful. I only am here because my sister was not as lucky as she was diagnosed way to late and ultimately passed away last April 5 month after being diagnosed. This made me go and have a scan even though I felt fine and had no symptoms. So basically my sister saved my live. I am a huge advocate for early diagnosis and still shocked how many people die of this horrific disease no it's not as "glamorous"as breast cancer which is a shame since it's cureable when found early. I do have a hard time with being a survivor. Some days are so overwhelming and I think that everybody is lying to me and that I still have cancer. I am still grieving for my sister and have a hard time with her not being here anymore. I work in the medical field which makes it very hard to cope some days. Thank you for being here Mally and BobbieA 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
