Re: lung cancer cough

I'm in the same situation with my father, he also has 1st stage lung cancer and has this cough that gets out of hand at night, he never had a good nights rest for like a month now and he is very depressed and its making me depressed seeing him like this. Please help, there must be a remedy out there. I just want him to have good nights rest. thanks.
