I've been dealing with lower left lobe non small cell cancer since january of this year. non operative., and the only option I now have left if the 7 weeks of radiation I just completed doesnt work is doing it again with chemo. I can't NOT fight, I have to much fight to give up and to much love behind me not to fight with everything in me. I'm actually homeless because of my medical bills but even that isnt going to slow me down. Your sister needs to know she has you in her corner and you have her back. I'm only 48 myself and a newly wed to boot. And I'm pretty sure my husband didnt expect a cancer diagnosis for his new bride 2 weeks after the wedding but thats what he got. But hes my reason to fight. And one reason is all you really need. God bless hun. and tell your sister to keep her chin up and remember it aint the size of the dog in the fight its the size of the fight in the dog.View Thread
