I was diagnosed with stage IV non-small cell adenocarcinoma of my lung in December of 2014 . The EGFR was exon 21, P.L 858R. I was diagnosed by going into cardiac tamponade with 870 ml of fluid. The fluid tested positive for the cancer and mutation. I had R supraclavicular, R paratracheal, subcarinal & L infrahilar lymph node involvement. A 7mm Right frontal lobe brain lesion and bone metsR scapular, spine at C5,6, T2& T4. Not bad for a lady who never smoked and thought she was healthy. I tell you this because I was hopeless when the Oncologist told me I had a year, maybe two. Then I met a lady with stage IV lung cancer with mets to her pancreas who was without evidence of disease. She gave me hope and recommended a book; Anti cancer A NEW WAY OF LIFE (yellow sticker newest studies) by Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD. This is a physician from Pittsburgh who discovered he had a brain tumor and his journey. He talks about the need to change your terrain so the cancer can't grow. I have adopted eating as much of the antioxidants as I can. Berries, lots of them, along with spinach, mushrooms, flaxseed with hemp and avoid processed foods. While my doctor says there is no scientific proof that diet with the diet. I believe my friend and I are. She has no evidence of disease 5 years and I celebrated my 1 year anniversary the end of September 2016. I had one stereotactic radiation treatment to my brain, take Tarceva daily and get an IV infusion of Avastin every four weeks. Oh, and did I mention prayer? I talk to God all the time. I am ever grateful to God for His kindness and letting me take this opportunity to grow spiritually and give others hope. I wish all of you a healthy happy future and for me, I feel blessed and appreciate everyday that I have.
