LUNG FORCE Heroes
I was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer July 3, 2018. Determined to fight I started chemotherapy. CAT/PET scans and a brain MRI showed no cancer anywhere else. My left lung was collapsed and I had a large mass in my chest.
After 3 rounds of chemo a CAT scan showed the mass gone and no sign of cancer. In May of 2019 a brain MRI showed cancer in my cerebellum. CAT scan still showed no cancer in lungs. I have finished 10 days of brain radiation. In September an MRI will be done and we will see no cancer in the brain. As of today, July 19, no cancer anywhere else.
