A small-cell lung cancer diagnosis
My brother passed away after a year of having non-hodkins lymphoma. He was 52. Two months later I found out I had small cell lung cancer, That was 1 year and a half ago. I have had 35 radiations with chemo. Had a rest for a couple of months now I am doing chemo and immunotherapy every week.
Happy to be alive
In 2012 had breast cancer, had radiation, 35 treatments and pills for 5 years. I am just happy to be alive. So I worked in the affected area at 9/11 since 1985 but thought nothing of it. I retired 4 years ago because of a stroke. I have good days and bad. So I don't know if I just got cancer or was it caused by 9/11? I am not that active anymore. I sleep a lot but I am happy.
