Really New Newby.


Recommended Posts


71 year old Grandpa just diagnosed with NSCLC that has spread to my spine.

So new that not all of the Genetic test results are back yet.

Just waiting on acceptance into an Immuno therapy program.

People call me Joe amongst other things.

Hello Joe,

Its nice to meet you. Welcome to your new family. I too had spinal Mets at the time of my diagnosis, the genetic testing was ALK so targeted therapy was initiated last fall.  The Mets are gone, bones have healed.  The treatment we have available to us is amazing. Let us know how you are doing, you’ve landed in the right place.
