LUNG FORCE Heroes
My journey with lung cancer is just beginning. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer this month. I have no idea what to do, or how this will affect me and my family. We are devastated. I don't understand the stage; at first, I was a 3B, then the doctor said I was a 4, due to cancer cells being present in the fluid that was removed from around my heart.
I don't want palliative care; I want to be cured. I'm ready to fight, I just don't know how.
