Welcome to the new GRACE site!

Here we hope to provide a new and friendly place for our community members, that goes beyond what our old forum did.  Our amazing faculty is building and we would like to continue to share their knowledge with others, to provide a place for those dealing with more types of cancers, including Lung.

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. 

Oligoptogression with Alecensa

Hi, my mother was diagnosed with stage IV adenocarcinoma with brain metastases 15 months ago. After all the analyses, it was determined that he has a mutation for which he is suitable to take Alecensa-Alectinib. After the initial use, her condition improved drastically. An intermediate CT scan from more than a month ago shows progression at one point, in the primary tumor. Head metastases are smaller. So, oligoprogression is at one point. We are a little disappointed because we read that Alecensa works for up to 37 months.

BVSEV - Ned's Chart of Treatment vs QOL

Article
In recent discussions, and in honor of our 15 year anniversary, some of our board members and staff came up with a list of their favorite patient education pieces. 

 

Our dear Ned was a stalwart supporter of GRACE, and had a huge part of us becoming the amazing community that we have been. 

We sadly lost Ned in 2011, but his humor, goodwill, and kindness lives on.  We at GRACE will always remember him as a founding member of our community.
