Re: Small lung cancer in 63 year old

My 75-year old mother was diagnosed with SCLC on 12/11/06. This week we met with her oncology Dr. and her treatment is going to be an agressive combination of chemo and radiation - approximately 3.5 months. With just learning about the diagnosis - listening to all the treatment and possible side affects of the treatments it surely seems overwhelming at this time. We are very encouraged as she only has to very small nodules in her right lung! Wondering if you can recommend any reading material for my Mom that would help her as well as family members. I have begun journaling - both to capture all the information from the Dr.'s as well as questions and feelings. I just signed up to this message board - and it surely looks like a great place to get and share information and thoughts.
