Are We Too Late?

My 57-year old brother was finally diagnosed Friday with Invasive Mucinous Adenocarcinoma after being misdiagnosed with pneumonia since June 2020. It started with consolidation in the lower right lobe, but now his right lung is fully compromised and it has spread to his left lung. So he's had the cancer untreated now for almost a year and it's so widespread. Are we too late? The thoracic surgeon who did the wedge resection removed three tumors for testing and says he won't refer to a cancer hospital until he gets the results in a few weeks.

Mother diagnosed with adenocarcinoma - treatment options

Dear Cancer Grace Team,

Thank you for the amazing work you do to support families like us.

My mom (76 year old) was recently admitted to hospital with massive pleural efussion in her right lung.
They performed Thoracoscopy + Talc Pleurodesis and upon performing pleural biopsy they confirmed today it as Adenocarcinoma (IHC markers - TTF1 - nuclear positive and P40 - negative). 

Immediately after biopsy (before report came out), Doctors recommended to start Gefitinib or Osimertinib depending  on our finances.
