Cancer second opinion -

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

I took my niece and her husband to Temple U Fox Chase cancer center for his second opinion on a newly diagnosed lung cancer. Not good news he has stage four and it is spreading. My niece wanted me to ask some questions for her. All in all they took the news in stride. It is a really difficult time for them. Tough spot to be in. Smoking triggered the small cell lung cancer over the years. Quick spreading and you don't survive long. He has only known of it for two months, but has been having asthma like symptoms for months. He thought it was post Sandy mold to blame. Glad I was able to quit 35 years ago.
