Hi. I am new here. I was diagnosed with nsclc on October 23rd. Needless to say, when this was staged at 4, I freaked out. My doctor claims this has only been 3-6 months in my body when I was told. How can that be? I had clean CT for smokers screening 2 years ago. Currently taking 3 drug cocktail of chemotherapy and had 3 treatments prior to this of cyber knife radiation therapy on my brain tumors(3) with a 4th appearing at recheck MRI. the other 3 have shrunk.
I am raising my 11yr old grandson with my husband. This diagnosis has been really hard on my Teddy. I am his "other" mom. His mother is an addict and his father, my son, passed away in January of 2016.
The struggle is real. . .
