We have just found out that our precious 62 year old cousin has adencarinoma lung and the pet scan showed it has spread to the bones; pelvis and spine. She will start chemo Monday a 6 hour treatment and then another one in three weeks. She is a lifelong non-smoker. Her husband is a smoker although quit for awhile after his open heart surgery several years ago; but is now smoking again. Anybody out there got any words of wisdom. Her mother (my aunt) turned 91 today and is recovering from a light stroke; but she's pretty savy and dealing with it as well as can be expected.
As some of you know, my husband just finished chemo in January and radiation in April for head and neck cancer and got his port out last week. His CT scan in June was fabulous; so I know miracles happen. Will appreciate any thoughts as we as a family are in wonderful gratefulness and praise for my husband; but devastated by this news of our cousin. Thanks.
