Blessed and Loved

I was diagnosed August 8th with adenocarcinoma stage 4 lung cancer. Started out being treated for pneumonia. It seemed to not be getting better so I saw my Dr, he ordered tests and here we are.

I have not been sick…pukey sick… I have all my hair and it’s a lot. I’m not new to this awful illness. We lost one to cancer and 2 of my sisters are in remission with lung cancer and 1 with breast cancer. I have 2 more sisters and they are fine. The odd thing is we’re sure it’s from my mother’s side (there are other family members that have passed away due to cancer on my mom’s side). The 2 younger sisters are half-sisters. We have the same mother. The boys (there were 4 now 3) not from cancer, seem to be ok except 2 older than me have had strokes but are fine. Heart problems are on our Dad’s side.

I have one more chemo treatment then on to immunotherapy. I pray for all with any devastating illness and your families that God will bless you and keep you in His loving arms. Have a wonderful day.

    Thank you @happyhoss1 for sharing. My mother also learned of her disease through a pneumonia diagnosis. Wishing you the very best in this journey. Best!

    Hi @happyhoss1, I too have a family history of lung cancer. My maternal grandfather and his brothers and sisters as well as my Mom, who was diagnosed a couple of months before I was diagnosed. There have been many advances since then thankfully. Thank you for sharing your story. Wishing you all the best with your last chemo treatment and your immunotherapy treatment! Would love to hear how it goes. Kindly, Alisa, Team

    Thank you so very much and I will pray for you and your family . I believe if my Lord Almighty wants me he’ll take me in time no matter what. I could walk across the street and get run over, slip on the ice and crack my head and die…so many ways to go. I’ll continue to keep my spirits up and pray and do what I can to help others. God Bless you and your loved ones.
