My mom (age 73 and in great health) was diagnosed in October, with lung cancer. She had surgery to remove the tumor over Thanksgiving. We were told, after her biopsy that it is stage 3A and has affected some of the lymph nodes close to the tumor but not the ones farther away. She is home now and doing very well. We have our first appointment with an oncologist today, but from most of the things I have read, the survival rate is very low. Has anyone out there survived these circumstances???
