Hello All


Recommended Posts

I have been lurking for ahile and finally decided to introduce myself. I was diagnosed with stage 4 nslc adenocarcenoma in 3-03. I have undergone 6 rounds of taxotere and tarceva with no sucess.

Currently my primary tumor in my right lung has collapsed 2/3 of the lung. I am undergoing 20 radiation treatments to shrink the tumor and reexpand the lung.

Up until this last setback I was working full time. I have now decided to file for social security disabilty.

I have been encouraged by the stories here and pray for all of us.

I do hope the radiation will do it's job and you will soon be feeling much better.

I am adding you to my long prayer list,
