Yvonne A., CA

Back in 2019, I was diagnosed with stage 2B lung cancer. In 2020, I had a lobectomy in my lower right lung. The surgeon removed the lower half of my right lung. Fortunately, it had not spread anywhere else. 

The day the mask mandate began, I started chemotherapy. My husband was not allowed into the room with me to hold my hand. I felt alone and afraid. After eight hours, I was finished with my first chemotherapy. 

I kept positive and began striking up a friendship with others in the room. The nurses made sure we were all comfortable, and I never felt alone. Positivity comes out in negative situations if you stay positive. I am careful with all that I do and my surroundings. Not staying in areas with bad air or exhaust fumes. I am proud to report that I am still cancer-free. Thanks to my wonderful maker. Please stay positive and never feel alone. Talk with the people around you in the chemo room and help them to stay positive as well. Act goofy if possible just to bring a smile to their face. I pray for each and every one of you.
