Welcome to my CaringBridge website. Thank you for visiting. Following extreme fatigue and shortness of breath over the last few years, and the recent discovery of a large mass in my neck, I was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell lung cancer. Because this cancer is so aggressive, my doctor had me start chemo less than a week after diagnosis. Chemo will be three days a week (Thurs. - Sat.). This is day 3 of chemo and I am having no side effects. This is also day 3 becoming a non-smoker-sans patches! Radiation is planned to commence with round 3 of chemo (January 10). I will keep you posted as time goes on. Thank you for your interest and support.
