This community is such an amazing one!
When my mom was diagnosed back in 2013, I was so shocked at how little awareness was out there, how few support groups, etc... Lung cancer was all new to me & I didn't have many people to turn to for support. Many didn't know what to say or hadn't experienced lung cancer, as a patient or caregiver. People seemed to not really have the compassion, including DOCTORS, because of the stigma associated with Lung Cancer.
My dad was also diagnosed in summer of 2016 -- and finished radiation, after 6 weeks of treatment.
He was diagnosed at Stage II -- and is scheduled for a follow up PET scan on April 3rd. He seems to to be doing well though, all things considered. Still working a part time job (even after he retired, he just couldn't stay home and watch TV) LOL!
The man is a mover!
