My husband recently died from Stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer that was discovered by accident in late March when the tumor appeared in the base of his right lung when he was having an abdominal CT. In late April he had a lung biopsy that confirmed the diagnosis. He had some chemo, but he didn't tolerate it well. Sadly it was too little too late. The love of my life died on July 1, 2016. I really dislike cancer.
I fired most of his private doctors and took him to VA Urgent Care when he still didn't have a oncologist assigned to him by his PCP and his insurance company. I feel that my husband may still be alive today if he had been diagnosed earlier. I can't say enough about the wonderful care my husband received from the VA Medical Center at Lake Nona, Orlando, Florida. He received swift and professional treatment each and every time he was at their facility. I truly think the VA gets a bad rap sometimes. The nurses who worked in the Infusion Lab were awesome.
