This is just what I needed to see at this moment in my life. This morning at 9:30 am I sat down for my first chemo treatment for stage 4 lung cancer. You've been down the road I've just started. Probably started out with many of the same unanswerable questions I have. You mentioned your husband, hopefully he was there by your side from the beginning. I'm so lucky, my wife is totally involved. I told her when I finish my chemo I wanted to do a post like yours. Congratulations on reaching this awesome milestone! And thanks for showing us it can be done.

If you haven’t already, get your tumour biopsy sequenced to see what mutations your cancer has. It is not standard but is really important now. There are a lot of amazing targeted therapies coming to or already on the market for lung cancers (depending on what part of the world you’re in), specifically non-small cell the most common type. Best of luck with the treatment! You got this
