Recent cancer patient

I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer very recently...I start my chemo this coming week and of course I'm going to fight but I'm such a jumble of emotions right now..It's so scary!!

  1. I can imagine the emotional process you're feeling right now. I hope treatment goes well and know you have a support network here at lung cancer if you need it. Wishing you the very best this week!

    1. I was originally diagnosed 23 years ago and I remember how overwhelming and scary it was like it was yesterday. Wishing you all the best with your upcoming chemo treatments, please feel free to update us, we are here to share and support each other. Warmly, Alisa, Lung Cancer Team Patient Leader

      1. Hi . Your concerns about starting treatment are certainly understandable. That said, I do want to note that treatments have come a long way. We have some patient leaders who have been stage 4 for quite a few years and are still going strong. Do you know if you have had biomarker testing done? Please know that this community is here for you and feel free, if you like, to keep us posted and ask questions. Best, Richard ( Team)

        1. Hi , just wanted to check back in with you to see how treatments are treating you so far. We are here for you and thinking of you.
