    Hi- I just joined this site so that I can be in touch with other people who have or had lung cancer. Two of my friends who had lung cancer are gone now. I’ve had lung cancer for 20 years and thought that I should share my story on a blog,
    I’ve had 2 surgeries, chemotherapy and two types of radiation: Proton and Photon. I am currently one week away from my first follow-up CT scan for my last cancer that was in October. That was taken care of (I hope) by Photon Radiation. There has been no staging done on my last 2 cancers. They have been to difficult to access.

    Except for my first cancer I have multifocal adenocarcinoma of the lung. I really hope that I can connect with people. My husband has been a wonderful, supportive care taker but I’d love to connect with people who know what I feel and what it’s like to have lung cancer.
    Thank you

    Hi I also just joined this site. I was diagnosed with stage 3 non small lung cancer in July. I had unilateral facial , ear and jaw pain. My ENT finally figured out I had lung cancer. I look forward to getting to know people and their experiences. So sorry to hear of your friends passing merpreb
