Stanford university health pointed out that the surviving lung cancer, T


I got that prognosis I felt doomed I was flying back from Hawaii I felt a littlebump behind my collarbone I really didn't give it much thought I made it appointment to go see my everyday doctor and he said doesn't look like much but let's check it out and he sent me to another doctorthis doctor proceeded to deliver a very gloomy prognosis I had a year maybe two if I responded to what ever the treatment was he's systematically removedhope so I went back to see my doctor and he mentioned doctor whately he said that she was the head of thr aka Kon college he has Stanford university and what I consent to go see herright area it is a tumor when he came in he had very advanced stage three lung cancer many people believe that once it's already spread into the lymph nodes like that that there's no hopeand so we work hard to try to overcome that as we had to with 

Tony and let them know that there is hope when I talked to doctor likely I didn't feel doomed anymore in the first minute that I talked to her she said ohwe cure people like you all the time and when do you want to start treatment Tony the reason we picked the chemotherapy and radiation was that he had stage three be lung cancer so with this area and thosesurgery doesn't really play a role radiation is critical but adding the chemotherapy to the radiation is far more effective it was trying it was very tryingit was hard it was definitely hard dreaming I kind of knew that the treatment was working because this bump one way almost like within like the first monthis now over four years out and very hopefully cured in the last decade there's been so many advances and how we treat a lot of different cancers particularly lung cancerthe main changes have been in the way that we can focus the radiation and minimize the spillover radiation to the surrounding organs and that allows us to get the dose where it needs to gominimizing side effects we can also analyze the DNA of the tumor and identifying specific mutations 

That may predict response to certainly drugs that's something that we now do for every patient that comes inwe have enough tissue and so that's where we really can target the treatment in a different way and that's all new science that was not known at all ten years ago it's great to be able to talk to someone who is merely diagnosed and say you don't don't give up hopewe have these to offer you now that we went to pad five years ago just imagine what we're gonna have it another year or two so let's work on this together and figure out a way to help you move and be a part of those new discoveries it's just a miracle his I don't know how else to describe it like thishere I am i've been given a repeat and ninety four to Hawaii with my reproofah ah
