            Hi KimmieAnne,   I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond to you, I just didn't know what to say.  My PET/CTscans showed NO ACTIVE CANCER IN MY BODY. I could write a book on my treatment experience.  I had my right middle lobe taken out April 2012.  They also removed 9 of the lymph nodes in my chest, 3 proved cancerous.

                    Hi KimmieAnne, Did it stop the growth or spread of it, or did it shrink it? I've got the rash, mostly on my face, then also on my neck and chest alittle.  What were the freadiy side effects you had? Does the rash gradually go away? Thanks so much for your reply, I greatly appreciate it!!!! schuckers
