Have you been diagnosed with SCLC?

What has your diagnosis / treatment experience been like?

  1. My husband is the patient. He was diagnosed at age 30 with EGFR+ NSCLC and was on targeted therapy for 2.5 years. Recently, his cancer transformed to SCLC and it is very upsetting. Like many lung cancer patients, he never smoked and 3 years out from diagnosis, it is still hard for me to accept that this is our life. He has some shortness of breath now and a recurring pleural effusion. He is on a chemo/immunotherapy combination right now. I pray for more available and effective treatments 🙏
