Good Bro Posted August 1, 2022 Share Posted August 1, 2022 The irony of August 1st being World Lung Cancer Day and also my brother's birthday is still a bit mind-blowing to me. He is approaching 15 months since his diagnosis of Stg4 NSCLC. As with many is his situation, he has had his ups and downs. He doesn't have any mutations and his PDL1 is negative. So, no targeted therapy and no surprise that immunotherapy didn't work. He is now on his 3rd line treatment with Gemzar and docs told him that it's onto clinical trials if this doesn't work. Amazingly, his performance status is still pretty decent (~1). Just hoping there are more drug breakthroughs coming in the future and that he, and all others dealing with this disease, can hang on that long to benefit from them. So sad to watch a family member and close friend go through this horrible disease. LouT, Tom Galli, Pstar and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
