On July 19, 2016,  'Mom/Aunt Peggy',  went to her doctors office with pain in her right lung area that was worse at night when lying down.  Believing that this pain could possibly be a pulmonary embolism, she was sent to Swedish Medical Center for X-rays and CT scans.  It was  discovered that a nodule of some sort was residing in her right upper lung.  Two days later she went to  Pulmonology where they thought she might have aspirated stomach acid which was causing the pain and explain the nodule.  After 10 days on antibiotics, another X-ray was done but the nodule had not changed so a PET/CT, MRI and biopsy were performed.  She has been diagnosed with Stage 4, Adenocarcinoma, the most common lung cancer diagnosed in women as well as non-smokers.
