silkee Posted June 18, 2004 Share Posted June 18, 2004 Hi Everyone, on Jan. 23, 2004, my mother lost her battle with NSCLC. Maybe some of you knew her. Her name was Marsha, and she was from Eastlake, OH. I am still struggling with this, and it seems to be getting worse instead of better. I am so grateful that I was by her side, holding her hand while she slipped away, but I feel like my world has ended. I've decided to dedicate my life to fighting this disease- it is the least I can do for her. I am just so disgusted with the treatment that LC patients get- not the chemo, but the quality of care. She was treated at one of the best hospitals in the country, but yet I always felt like she was being treated as a second-rate citizen because of the stigma associated with LC. It sickens me. I know that there are support groups in the area, but nothing seems to be geared toward LC. Does anyone out there know of any groups in the Cleveland area? Thx, Tia Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
