Stage 4 Lung Cancer

Being diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer

On March 28th, I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Within 18 months, I lost almost 60 pounds. Other than occasional wheezing the weight loss was my only symptoms.

My treatment journey

I am currently receiving chemotherapy and immunotherapy as a part of my treatment plan. I've just completed my 2nd round of chemotherapy out of 4 total rounds. A symptom from that I have experienced from this is total hair loss which has occurred in only 4 weeks of treatment, but I can deal with that.

Support goes a long way

I am receiving tremendous support from family and friends. This is a hiccup in my life, not the end!

I choose hope!

My hair loss, due to hair coming our in handfuls I chose to have my hair buzzed
