Chelsea my name is Mary Beth and I was diagnosed with stage iv lung cancer with mets.  I was diagnosed 3 years ago.  Never let your father give up its about will as well as any thing else.  I have 2 sons thank god my youngest is now 18 but he was your age when i was diagnosed and he had a hard time dealing with it and still is.  If you ever what to talk to someone let me know I bet he would talk to you.  My prayers go to you and your dad/  God bless you

My father died from lung cancer on March 17 2010. I fought with him for 40 days. I took pictures from the first day he went in the hospital till the day we buried him. It was the worst expirience in my life. I've been a smoker since 14. I'm now 38. I stopped smoking when i saw my dad's first xray. When he died in my arms i swore to him that i would take care of my mom and that i would never touch a smoke again. I don't ever want anyone who loves me go through what i went through with my dad. I can help alot if anyone has questions as to what exactly happens during the last stages. My dad went in the hospital with stage 4. He never had any serious health issues while living. It just hit him 1 shot. The doctors told me that he had 2 months to live. This was on Feb 7th. He died on March 17th. If I can help anyone. Please do not hesitate. Be strong.

My father is going through this process now. I don't know how to deal with the pain. It's just too much, too soon.

Since December 24th, my father's health has been deteriorating so so fast... Now he can't even talk. He says that smth in his throat hurts and he can't talk. He can't breath.. I feel desperate!!

5 years ago my father had his anual check up and the Doctor noticed a small spot in his lungs on an xray and told us there was nothing to worry about that we would just keep an eye on it. that doctor is a phony, february of 2011 we found out that it had grown significantly it had taken over both of his lungs, my father decided to try chemotherepy he has done chemo all the way up til last month our goal was to keep it where it was it might give us 3 more years with him but last month on a normal chemo day the doctor came in and told us chemo was no longer helping that it had spread to his throat and his liver they gave my daddy 2 months he is now trying radiation with a 3% chance it will slow the growth and also considering to stop. i completely understand why he wants to stop. who wants to be sick the last few months of there live just for 3 more months if that? its very selfish for me to ask him to do that this is entirely his desision, recently weve been noticing that he has been losing his voice... the doctors said he would more than likely die of pnemonia or basically suffocate but im only 17 and daddys little girl i am trying to be strong for him and my siblings and my mother but i dont know how to keep it together for more than a day i wait til my boyfriend falls asleep to cry myself to sleep,,, while juggling work and enrolling into college and trying to cope with this termanal illness that not only my father but the whole family has to deal with and i dont know how much longer i can put up this i can handle it attitude because i really cant,,,they say that attitude is very impotant in these cases and my father has one hell of an attitude towards it the day the doctors gave him a few months he said those werent his cat scans and it was a misdiagnosis :) gotta love him

any advice on how to cope and how to get a 2 year old to cope with his papaw being sick please please help me out

Hi everybody, I am Chelsea. My father was told he had lung cancer in early August. He did the cemo treatment and it did not work. He went to the doctors after that and they gave him 6 months to live.  But for the people who have lost there love ones from it i have a couple of questtions. Did you know when his time was up? And how did you move on from it. I need to know more about it. I am only a 15yrs girl, that doesnt know anything. So if you people would help me out that would be great.

thanks<3

Hey, i'm so sorrry to hear that. I'm 18 and back in october my father passed away from brain and spiral cancer. It was his 4th time getting cancer and he just couldn't fight it anymore. He was given and month and it was the hardest experience of my life. My father and I were as close as they get and to see him getting worse everyday and me not being able to do anything killed me. But you just have to cherish this time you have with your father, talk to him about everything and anything. Hug him and tell him you love him as much as you can. Just spend as much time with him as you can. To answer your questions you know when it gets worse you can just sense it and see the changes. But right before my father passed away he had hospis taking care of him and she said we had to say goodbye and I new he heard every word I said to him that night. And chelsea even after he passes away he will ALWAYS be with you in your heart. He loves you so much your his little girl. And just know he is in a better place pain free now. It helps me sometime if i talk out loud to him it might help you keep that in mind. Again I am terribly sorry <3

My Mum has lung cancer (she's had cancer for 9 years).  She had 6 months of gruelling chemo which hasn't helped as much as we'd hoped it would.  Now they have given her a blast of radio therapy, just six weeks later.  Then if that fails they go back to the chemo.

Why?  why do they keep pumping her with drugs when clearly she's coming to the end?  Also what is the end like?  I'm scared of her dying but I'm more scared of not knowing what to expect.  Any thing, most of all the fact and the truth would be what I need.  My mum is burying her head and won't share how she's feeling or the details of what is happening
