Janine’s husband, Don was diagnosed with a pancoast tumor of squamous NSCLC in 2009.  After curative doses of concurrent chemo and radiation a tumor on the spine then months later a tumor in the other lung was found but biopsies were undiagnosable and treatments continued until 2012.  As of today, the beginning of 2016 Don is NED and living life.  Janine began visiting the Grace website in 09 seeking information about her husband’s disease and hasn’t yet left because she understands the important link the forum makes between information and the individual.
