I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer last March 11,2011. I was pretty healthy before that, that is why it was a shocked to me and my family to be this sick. It has been 3 months after the diagnosis.My oncologist prescribed "Tarceva" pill, a targeted therapy pill, that targets only cancer cells. It is less toxic than the intravenous chemotherapy. The first week of the pill I experienced the normal side effects like diarrhea and rash. I ate 2 bananas and with the rash,my doctor prescribed an antibiotic and works fine. Having a positive attitude helps as well as people around you. Have faith in God, HE is is the only one who knows the end of our lives. Eat and live healthy. I was a non-smoker and non-drinker and will continue to to do that. My husband blends these concoction everyday, a combination of fresh vegetables and fruits. They are: raw cabbage , broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower,beets, turmeric,banana, apples,strawberries, papaya or any fruits in season. Use carrot juice in the blender. I drink it 3x a day in addition to my regular meal. After three months I am strong and gained back my weight that I lost. I had my xray last April 18th and looks good. My next appointment will be on June 22nd and I am positive it will be good. I keep myself busy, Finishing my MBA hope to graduate in August, and I just finished compiling our family tree. Last April 25th I attended a family reunion with almost 600 relatives in attendance, and celebrated my 56th birthday with a mananita at 6am in the morning.
