i dont know how to express my concern for my mother in-law. she has made it through chemo and radiation for stage IV throat cancer. has had 2 bouts of pneumonia and went to 83 lbs. now she is about 90lbs. so this week she was diagnosed with lung cancer non operable and the only thing to do is chemo. this is the catch she is still smoking 1-1 1/2 packs a day. amazing. she smoked through most of the chemo and radiation. anyone know how people make it through while smoking. any sugestions on how to approach her. it seems that all avenues have been persued.
