Hi! My name is Lyen Tanner

Last updated: November 2021

My name is Lyen Tanner. I am 65 years old, and I have 2 kids; 1 in Texas and 1 in heaven. I am living with extensive small cell lung cancer (SCLC). It is located in my right lung, liver, bones, and my brain! I am diagnosed in November 2020.

My treatment journey

I’ve been doing chemotherapy and immunotherapy since I was first diagnosed. Last month, I completed 10 rounds of whole-brain radiation. Next week, I go for a brain MRI, then another lung and body scan in November.

Maybe a clinical trial will be my answer?

I was tested & have the special protein to qualify for 2 clinical trials! I’m praying for a miracle!??♥️
