Cath_g Posted August 12, 2004 Share Posted August 12, 2004 My name is Cathy and I am in London Ontario Canada... I was just told I have lung cancer. So far I have not been staged. Have had several tests and am having bone scan next week. I am terrified. I have joined 2 other lung cancer support groups. Unfortunately I need help to get through this mess. It will take a bit to learn my way around your site. Thats ok. I am trying to learn to accept this is happening to me and adopt a positive attitude to fight back with. I will not die from lung cancer without one hell of a fight. That may sound like a strong attitude, but please believe me, I am terrified and still somewhat in shock and maybe denial having just been told a few days ago. I lost my dad to cancer 8 years ago and my sister last June. My dad fought for 2 years and then gave up. My sister had had pancreatic cancer 5 years ago and it was removed. She did no follow ups and got more cancer. This time breast cancer, but by the time they found it it had already spread into her spine. I have no intentions of going anywhere. I am only 51 years old. Well that's a start of an introduction. Cathy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
