My cancer

My story started in February. I went to urgent care because I was throwing up, they did a CT scan and there I found out I had lung cancer. I had to go get a brain MRI to see if I could get a biopsy. Come to find out I have stage 4 brain and lung cancer. I started radiation on the brain and chemo on the lung. I am starting to do much better now, but it been a long and hard road to recovery.
