This is my first time writing on this board, but I have been reading the discussions for about two months. My mom is 75 and was recently diagnosed with PPC. I had never heard of PPC and mistakenly went to Google to educate myself. After a few days of utter panic I came across this site. From that day on, I feel equipped to ask the doctors questions, catch chemo side effects early and support Mom and the rest of my family with relevant information. Mom is on her third round of carbo/taxol and other than losing her hair, fatigue and lack of appetite is doing very well. I don't have any questions, because over time you have answered all of them. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for sharing your information, struggles and victories.
Wishing you a new year of health and hope,
