Help for my husband

Posts: 10

My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer that has also spread to his vertebrae and to his brain. He is 51 and I am 49. We have a 15 year old daughter. Right now I am trying to be supportive but am literally falling apart. I am typing this at 3:30 in the morning as I cannot sleep worrying about him. Information on the internet for stage 4 lung cancer is so depressing. Can anyone out there give us some hope and direction? Please help us.

My thoughts and prayers go with you and your husband; I know it's a rough journey your on; But there really is hope; My left lung was removed 19 months ago today; stage IIB; Keep the faith and keep talking about how you feel, I found it helps; also there's a bunch of stage IV survivors on lungcancersurvivors.org;
again my best to you
