    Update: They hope to have a biopsy tomorrow and a bone scan Wednesday. The doctor hopes to start chemo by Monday. There is 4 different "lung cancers" and after the tests they will know which one they are working with and where it has spread. Right now we know it is in the liver, lungs, adrenal, a lymph node and possible her bones. The doctor indicated he hopes to give her a few more months with chemo but a time span has not been discussed.

    It is estimated that 87% of all lung cancer cases are related to smoking–a lifestyle risk factor that can be completely irradiated. The average survival rate is 49% for those whose lung cancer is detected in an early stage. Unfortunately, only about 15% of lung cancers are found in the earliest stage.

    Keeping your spirits up is what helps people make it through so- once a week- send a card- it is important (throw one in for Nana too).
