LUNG FORCE Heroes
March 2015 I woke up with intense pain in my stomach. I rushed to the hospital where I had my gall bladder removed. The doctor gave me my X-rays and told me to see my primary doctor right away. There were two nodules on my right lung.
After tests and a biopsy, two cancers were discovered. Top nodules adenocarcinoma and bottom nodule small cell. Both removed. It is now December and I am in remission. I am 81 years old and ride an adult trike one to two miles a day, feel great.
