Laura Ann Posted September 21, 2004 Share Posted September 21, 2004 I have been reading messages on this site for several months now. For whatever reason I have been reluctant to jump in, but here I go. My mother was diagnosed with NSCLC in November 2003. I have been her main caregiver and medical care advocate since the first of the year. To say that this has been a learning experience would truly be an understatement. This web-site has meant so much to me. I can't begin to describe how much information I have received as a result of coming here daily. Also there is a feeling of comfort I receive when I come here, I can't explain it, it's just there. My husband and kids know that whenever I "disappear" for short periods of time that I'm on that "website". Taking care of my mother has brought new meaning to my life. I don't know how many others have experience this, but being so involved with the care of my mother has helped me to cope with this terrible disease. I thank God that I found this website.
