My husband was diagnosed with NSCLC in July 07.The diagnoses was Metastatoc Lung Cancer. He had 8 chemo treatments and is now on Avastin and Tarceva. He has been doing well. The cancer is in his lungs, liver and lymph nodes. He is terminal. His Dr. wanted him to go on disability but he said no. He is still working. He has to work for us to have insurance.

My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer (NSCLC) in Sept. 07. He had surgery and was doing well for 3 days. He started getting real short of breath and couldn't breath.He coded out  and they brought him back. He was on a vent. for 40 days. We finally had to make the decision to take him offf. We never expected Dad to have anything wrong with him., He made a garden this summer and was very active.  He lasted about 9 weeks.

Anyway, I wanted to know if anyone else was on the Avastin/Tarceva treatment and how are you doing? If not, do you know someone that is on the treatment?
