I failed to introduce myself...new to the site and discussion boards...I'm the daughter of a wonderful mom who is fighting stage four lung cancer that has spread to adrenal gland. Just looking for info and support. God bless all of you fighting this disease and those caring for them.

    Thank you! And what a cute photo, Glenna! I have found the smiles of children can make anyone feel good.

    Hi Sissylu
    Well put, Sissylu. Not a club I ever thought I'd join, but thankful I'm not in it alone.

    Unfortunately, I also would like to welcome you. Funny thing about this site. It makes you sad that there is another member. But glad you came here.

    Thank you!!
    The picture is of my beautiful 19 month old great grandson, Maven. He is my world!!! I have so many pictures of him and he is ALWAYS smiling. Whenever I am down I look though all of his pictures and it brightens my mood.

    Hello
    I new to this kind of thing too but here goes. I am the daughter of a great mom that has always been there for me and now she is battling terminal lung cancer with a prognosis of 3-4 mos. She was diagnosed last July and has taken chemo and radiation but now it has spread to her liver. She has stopped chemo and has decided that she wants quality of life right now and not to be so sick so she can enjoy her family and friends. I wish you and mom the best in this fight and I am so glad to find this community of people who can relate to what I am going through. I live in another state 8.5 hrs from my mom so it is really hard some days.
