Hello, my name is Rose and my mom was diagnosed with Limited SCLC in Jan. 2012. We are being told that the tumor(cancer) is inoperable and she is two chemo sessions in. My mom switched doctors and new oncologist decided to have a CT scan to see if her chemo is working (she is on cisplatin and etoposide). She also started 32 rounds of radiation yesterday and today we finally saw the radiation oncologist who told my mom that the chemo isn't working. He told her that her hematologist oncologist and him had a meeting and are going to change her chemo. He also told her that the cancer is very aggressive and worse case scenario is nothing works and she has four months to live. Now, I refuse to accept this and I was hoping someone here could help me out with some advice and maybe some resources that are available out there. I have no clue where to start...I am completely lost.
