Operations Director, GRACE

 

Welcome to the new GRACE site!

Here we hope to provide a place for our community members that go beyond lung cancer.  Our amazing faculty is building and we would like to share their knowledge with others, to provide a place for those dealing with other types of cancers. 

Share our forum with others, and please consider this a safe place to discuss and ask questions about living with cancer.  

Operations Director for GRACE. Have worked with cancerGRACE.org since July 2009.  Became involved as a caregiver to my best friend, and quickly came to see that GRACE is filling a need in the area of cancer education.

Hi mickh,

 

Welcome to Grace.  A big Congratulations on 5 years cancer-free my husband is 8 years.  I read a lot about people who have had cancer and feel they are back to normal.  I've never had cancer but my husband and niece have and they have significant lasting effects.  Most of their's are more obvious issues than the lasting effects of chemo but I have to believe that the toxicity of chemo drugs can have lasting issues. 

 

I hope someone with more personal experience can add something here. 

 

All the best,
Janine

I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.
