beverly nichols Posted April 28, 2004 Share Posted April 28, 2004 i am so glad that i found this website both for myself and my sister. she's a 42 yr old, single mom with a 6yr old daughter. the statistics you hear about are so scary that i don't think we should listen to them. one of our brothers says we have to keep hope that she will be in the 15-20% survivors group; my sister has the best outlook of us all(thank god) in that she is adament she will beat it. so far, 4 chemo sessions of carboplatin/vp16 have already shrunk the lung tumor and affected lymphnodes. she started 33 treatments of radiation last week. can anyone give me some true hope to have more than 2-3 years with her? thanks for any positive reinforcement you can give me, and even if the results are not great still let me know how things went and how you are handling it. thanks- bev Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
