Re: Small lung cancer in 63 year old

I know how terrible this is!! I was 21 when my mom was diagnosed and 23 when she died. I can tell you we did have many great times and memories through out it. I had such peace and closure by the time she passed because we said so much to each other that we might not have otherwise said. We all laughed and cried and friends from all over came and visited her when she was terminal. We were all so touched by the help and love of so many we didn't know all that well. It meant the world to my mom that so many visited, sent cards etc. She was quite remarkable...when they gave her one month to live she still kept busy, sewing and being my mom, and like I said, she lived five more months. Don't give up hope and enjoy each day.
