Judi L Posted July 20, 2020 Share Posted July 20, 2020 Hi! My name is Judi and I’m new to this so please forgive me for not knowing what to say. I’m not even sure this is where I’m supposed to introduce myself. 🤔 I’m 73 and live in Ocean County NJ with my husband of 50 years. I was diagnosed with Squamous NSCLC in October 2017 and, needless to say, life as I knew it changed overnight. Being an optimist, my mindset was (and is) that someone survives this so why not me. I’m fortunate to have an amazing medical care team and personal support system but realize that I need a connection with others who are also living with lung cancer. Despite challenges throughout my LC journey, I’m doing well as I continue with immunotherapy. But there are moments when the enormity of LC overwhelms me, especially since Covid. I rarely let anyone see me with anything but a smile on my face, not even my doctors. So I guess that’s why I’m here....not to complain or be a downer, but to feel less alone and hopefully help others as well. Thank you for “listening” and be well!
