LUNG FORCE Heroes
I was selected for a program to take a chest X-ray once a year starting in 1984. In 2002 the x-ray showed I had cancer in my right lower lung (small cell). I was operated on in March of 2003, the lower lobe of right lung was removed. My wife said the surgeon recommended I take radiation and chemo. I never did follow up on that recommendation. I am alive today with no signs of cancer.
