my dad was just diagnosed

Hi all,
This weekend I found out that my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. I don't know what type of cancer it is. I know he has 1 tumor in his lung and 1 lymph node that is affected. He was a smoker for 40 years. He has had a PET scan that did not show cancer anywhere else in his body. Tomorrow he is going to have a brain scan and a bone scan. Right now he is scheduled to start chemo on Wednesday. He will probably have radiation as well. I am terrified. Sorry I don't have any more information, but would appreciate any advice or info anyone can give me.
Thank you,
Stacey
