Hi everyone 

I am new to this site, Like many of you I was diagnosed with stage four cancer a year ago at age 56. after having shoulder pain which I thought was a sprained muscles, later my symptom worsen with I bumped my head on the window sill, I began to exprience headaches and nausea and double vision, vomiting, I went to see my doctor for sick leave within a two week period missing like six days finally I couldnt walk or dress myself, My husband called a nurse who told to go to the emergency, I finally got a responds from the Doctor nurse who call EMS. I was taken into ER immediately and in surgery the following day the doctor removed a tumor from my head. Then gave me the news it was stage 4 lung cancer. I had radiation to kill any other cell left in my brain then put on a chemotherapy pill called Afatnib I was on it for a year It did sqrink my tumor in my lung. I did weather the side affect fatique, rash break out, diarreah.  After a year my body started to resist the medication. At this time another growth and spot was detected. I was taken off the Afatnib. As Doctor decide the next step I ask all my faith friends for your prayer.
