Mixed small cell large cell cancer

Hi, I am new to the board and I would like some input please. I just moved to San Diego, CA from Indiana to help out my Aunt who has mixed small cell large cell lung cancer. It is a very rare form of lung cancer and I am having a hard time finding very much literature on it and I would be very grateful for any input that I may recieve. She had extensive chemotherapy in September and they now want to start radiation on her 5 days a week for 6 weeks. I hope someone can give me some feedback. Thank you.

Re: Mixed small cell large cell cancer

I am very sorry to hear about your aunt. I don't really know about mixed small cell and non-small cell lung cancer....but my mom had small cell which is very aggressive cancer.
I just wanted to tell you what a good person you are for being a caregiver. It is very hard work especially when it is someone you love. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I wish I could have been more help to you.
Take Care
