    • Cmen, I truly HATE!!! to hear this. My mother died from that same cancer. It started in her breast years ago they removed one breast, she was in remission for several years, then she had it under her arm on the other side it spreaded to the other breast when then it spreaded to her lungs we lost her in November of 1991.

    • My mother was diagnosed with oat cell carcinoma of the lung. She died 2 weeks later despite chemo and radiation. The day of my mother’s death, they found a “spot” on my sister’s chest x-ray. Her diagnosis of lung cancer came 3 days later. She underwent chemo and then had radioablation of the spot. My sister lived for 7 years, with episodes of new areas of growth that radioablation took care of. At least until it went to her spine. Technically she did not die of lung cancer, but other health problems she had. Throughout her illness, one sure way to get her riled up was to ask if she had ever smoked (she didn’t). She said that the person was implying that the smoker “deserved” cancer.

    • cmenmyvette, Thank you. She concealed how ill she was, even saying she had been to the doctor. She was afraid that she had cancer, and didn’t want an official diagnosis. At the time of diagnosis she was given 6 months on the outside. We believe that in God’s providence she died to soon to know about her daughter’s cancer. That would have devastated her.
