lung cancer in both lungs

My mom, age 84 was diagnosed this week to have lung cancer in both lungs. She has never smoked either! The oncologist said this type of lung cancer is the type that nonsmokers get! She is on some oxygen and medicine to try and build up her appetite! She has lost weight! I asked the oncologist why 3 months ago her lungs looked fine! He said by the time cancer showed up in chest xrays it was pretty far gone! The best way to find it would be in scans! Please pray for my mom! I am hoping the lord will heal her!

Re: lung cancer in both lungs

Sorry to read this news.

Have they developed a game plan for your Mom? Try to make sure she eats plenty to gain some of that weight back.

Hoping things are okay with you.

Re: lung cancer in both lungs

lavender, Im so sorry to hear about your mom. My mom and dad were both diagnosed last year and they also both passed last year from lung cancer. Its a horrible disease and I know what you are going through. My dad was 77 and mom was 75, but it doesnt matter how old they are, they are still your parents. I still cry and its been almost 1 year. I hope that your moms faith will see her through this and you as well. You're in my thoughts

Mama is still doing ok. She is on oxygen and at home. Just keep her and all of the family in your prayers and pray that the lord will lift her up and heal her. I can't imagine my life without my mom.

Re: lung cancer in both lungs

Lavender, gosh Im so sorry you're going through this. I was in the same place last year at this time with my mom and my dad. Its horrible and I hope you have support in family or friends. Just be sure to be there as much as possible. I know my mom could tell when she was close to going and I think she was very scared she'd go by herself. Tell her everything that is in your heart and do it now. I am thinking of you.

Re: lung cancer in both lungs

Lavender,

Gosh, I'm so very sorry to hear of your Mom's quick passing. Thank God she didn't have too much pain and was comfortable at the end. Doesn't make her loss any easier on you though, I know.

Many hugs and prayers for you during this difficult time.
