I just wanted to thank all of you that helped us through this past year or so. My husband Kevin sadly passed away in August. He'd been on Iressa for 7 months and with it shrinking the tumours he was able to get back to doing the work he loved. The Iressa stopped working in May and his health deteriorated gradually from then. This site was a huge encouragement to us both, sharing our journey and experiences with others. It would be great if we can increase awareness and improve early detection of lung cancer. My husband was a fit non smoker and I do feel that because he looked well his symptoms were not taken seriously until the cancer was too far progressed. Adenocarcinoma in non smokers is increasing but the cause is unknown. I hope that through organisations like this we can raise awareness.
