    My Dad's cancer has come back. He was first diagnosed in 2007 where he had his kidney removed as it was covered in tumours. The cancer returned a year later when it had spread to his lung. He had the tumor in his lung removed. He never told me or my siblings it was cancer, my Mum told us. ...

    My mum died last Friday night from NSCLC.

  • Forum Post: Grandad is terminally ill - I am no longer coping for some reason?

    My Grandad was diagnosed with cancer during the early months of the year.

  • Forum Post: Bluefusia

    My husband was diagnosed on January 2012 with non small cell lung cancer. It was a terrible shock to all of us in the family.

  • Blog Post: In denial?

    What do you do when a lung cancer patient says he can't understand why his breathing is worse, and why he keeps losing weight, even though he's eating quite well? He knows that there is no more treatment that can be given, but I'm not convinced that he has grasped the fact that his life is...
