Thanks for your welcome. The two with lung cancer are my ex mother in law and her sister. My m-i-l is non small cell non smoker's cancer. Her sister's is different. My mom is the one with issues from her mammogram. 3 weeks later we still haven't heard from her doctor. He is about to get a very unpleasant call from me. My daughter who is 20, is very aware of all that's going on and her need to keep an eye on herself.

Thanks again for your kind thoughts and words. Hopefully things will settle into a routine soon and I'll have more time to spend here.

Welcome. I am praying for all of you. You may want to check with your doctor about yourself since both your mom and aunt have had the same kind of cancer. Your doctor will likely want to keep a close eye on you so that if you would develope this early diagnosis would be probable.

If you need support feel free to spark mail me. I am here.

These last two weeks have been a little rough. My ex mother in law, who has never smoked a day in her life, was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. She also has blood clots in both lungs. It's not looking very good at all.

Her sister, who is also very dear to me, is in the hospital as well. She had lung cancer a couple of years ago and beat it. Now they've found another mass in her lung. It's too close to the heart to do radiation. Yesterday they did surgery and removed part of her lung.

My mother has an anomaly on her mammogram and we're just waiting to hear back from her doctor on where we need to go from there.

Thank you for letting me join this group.
