When seeking info about NSCLC, any and ALL prompts that might take me there lead me to a discussion about how you now have a Spanish language video—I don’t even speak the language, and there is no lung cancer information (other than in Spanish) findable under your ostensible “Focused Cancer Info”. I strongly suggest you have one of your (less than computer expert) volunteers review your website at length in order to make it usable. It is fine to have lots of information on the site—but that’s worthless if one can’t find it. I was delighted to find your site and read ‘response vs steady state’ information, but now I wonder how useful the site can be if I can’t find anything.

Hi lechefgerard,

Welcome to GRACE. I am sorry that you are having trouble finding the information you seek. The “Focused Cancer Info” link takes you to the most recent posts by the faculty, and lately we have been publishing a series of Spanish language videos, each of which have available transcripts in both Spanish and English. Also, if you choose the “Focused Cancer Info” link, in the right-hand column under “Archives” you will find a drop-down list in which you can select a category of information in which you are interested. Clicking on one of the categories will take you a a number of posts on that subject. For a specific topic, you can also use the search engine at the top of each page on the site. Finally, if you have a question, you can post it in the forums.

I hope this will help you make better use of the GRACE site. If you have any further questions about navigating the site, please let us know.

Thank you, Jim—since posting about my confusion, I discovered that one can search by topic word using the google search box at the top of the page—I’m sorry about your wife, mine died at age 36, after stage one breast cancer at age 32. I still cry about it, and I’m 83!

Hi lechefgerard,

Welcome to Grace. I wanted to add to JIm’s excellent responsse, I think the Grace search engine is the best way to find specific info. The drop down menus show the most recent info including “tagged” info. The issue here is the tags are meant as a general filter which have made the drop downs much more generalized than expected. We are working on this but in the meantime I think the search engine is best.

On a personal note, I know what you mean about never getting over the loss of a love one. It gets easier but doesn’t go away.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help when looking for info.

All best,
