member photo Hello Everyone.... I am now 3 years clear of lung cancer. I do get nervous when its time for the Pet Scan and Blood Test..I think all cancer survivors feel the same way.

"In Feb 2006 I was diagnosed with inoperable stage 3B lung cancer. As a nonsmoker and registered nurse I felt I was living a healthy lifestyle. I was given 4-6 months to live and encouraged to get my affairs in order. A doctor friend interested in complimentary medicine and research started me on a supplement plan while I was receiving chemotherapy. The goal was to enhance the effectiveness of the chemotherapy.
