My wife, 31 y/o, with Stage IV NSCLC adenocarcinoma ALK+ passed away recently. Crizotinib/Xalkori stopped working after 9 months. She was at home under hospice care after the docs stopped all treatments. She fought for 20 months and wanted to live so bad for our 3 kids, however it was just too much during the last couple months. I held her hand and watched as she took her last breath.
