I was diagnosed with Squamous non small cell carcinoma, lung cancer, stage 3B, in September 2015. I have had to rounds of chemotherapy and 33 radiation treatments which all ended 2/5/16. My tumor measured 7.7 cm in September and in February, measured 4.8. I am scheduled for my next cat scan on May 25th.
My coping mechanisms start with a very strong faith in an Almighty God. I've asked that His Will be done concerning this disease and I know whatever the outcome, it will be best. I also have an outstanding family. My husband has cared for me and driven me back and forth every day Monday thru Friday, 2 hours each way, for treatment. The treatments were from 12/14/15 to 2/5/16. I also have four daughters with very loving supportive husbands, and four grandson and four granddaughters. In addition. I have four sisters, a brother and my 87 year old mother. The list continues but I'm sure you get my point.
If you don't have a large family, get involved with a bible believing church and you will find the earthly and heavenly support you need.
God bless you all in your journey.
