Hello, I am new to this group, but have found the only glimmer of hope I've had in weeks from reading some of the stories posted on here. My Mom (59 yrs old) has just been diagnosed with Non-small cell lung cancer, Stage III. Her and I are VERY, VERY close and I am also pregnant with my second child, and 2 months away from my due date. This news has been devastating to my family, and made my pregnancy very difficult since I am having trouble managing the stress of the possibility of losing my mom. We are a very close family and I don't think any of us have ever thought of life without each other. This morning, after meeting with the oncologist she was so negative that she made me loose hope. I know that is the worst thing to do and that we all need to have hope to be able to fight this. The plan is to start with chemo ASAP (not sure what kind yet as we are still waiting for pathology report from biopsy) and then possible surgery. I was wondering if anyone has any survival stories to share that I can pass on to my family to offer some hope, especially to my mom? Also tips that helped you cope through lung cancer and treatment? Thank you in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.
