My father has been fighting lung cancer for almost 2 years now. He was diagnosed when pain in his back turned out to be lung cancer that had spread. Tarceva produced no results, and he underwent chemo. He recently got scan results back that have just taken my breath away. Every scan up to the most recent showed reduction in tumor size. This most recent one showed the tumor in his lung is gone but the cancer has spread throughout his spine. I am a grown woman and I feel like a little girl lost in a department store, calling out for my father. He is still here and fighting but I can hear the defeat in his voice. I am lost for words. I get off the phone and cry after fighting back the tears while he is on the line. I know so many here are suffering as I am and I almost feel bad for asking but I need something...ANYTHING. I have never felt so alone in my life and there is not one person to call right now...
