hope courage strength

hello everyone, I hope this finds everyone ok! I have just joined, and feel this a place of safety! I was diagnosed with stage 4 nsclc adenocarcinoma in October 2014. One met to occipital lobe. Anyways to cut a long story short, I remain clear following gamma knife radio surgery, lobectomy and chemotherapy. My next scans are in June. I wish everyone the best and my thoughts are with us all. If I can help in anyway please just ask. I don't know about you, but I have found this cancer journey thing quite a struggle, so many ups and downs, so many emotions, probably too many to describe. xx

Hello Sarah-Helen,

and welcome to our online community, I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis of lung cancer, this forum is a good place to come for advice and to share your experiences of lung cancer and its treatment. As you have said it is a journey with many ups and downs and support of others is important. I hope that your scan in June continues to give you positive news.

If you wish to speak with someone please give us a call on our nurse led helpline, freephone 0800 358 7200


Thank you for your kind reply! I used to be a sister in the accident and emergency department so it was quite traumatic at the time of diagnosis having my friends and colleagues look after me etc! I would like to offer my support to anyone on here who would like a shoulder to lean on or any experiences I have had which may help prepare others for what they may expect during treatment and beyond. I have found that my friends find it difficult to understand the situation a cancer patient finds themselves in, especially once treatment has finished.
