Stage 4 Lung Cancer Dawn #110

Waking up this morning to my 110th Stage 4 morning, “Loose Yourself” by Emimen echoed in my head … fighting to outlive cancer he is absolutely on target … “Success is my only motherf#&king option, failure's not”.

Radiated and/or wracked by chemo side effects I rise each day before ‘traditional’ morning to another Stage 4 Dawn … part of a ‘grateful to be alive’ army that will suffer mind numbing annual fatalities but cannot and will not fail.  

Plus … Lung Cancer Revolutions loom ... 

Remember Saturday morning cartoons??? Stop and take three minutes to watch this cartoon by Pfizer Oncology about…

How Molecular Profiling Is Changing the Fight Against Lung Cancer 

… then SHARE it with family, friends, social media … hell if you have a smart phone … stop strangers on the street and show it to them … if you have those phones you touch and share … well start touching … the absolute worse you can accomplish is possibly save some lives by giving more people a chance to outlive lung cancer.

Old school and prefer to read? Perhaps even raising a pinkie as you sip a cup of coffee ...  No problemo … “Gene breakthroughs spark a revolution in cancer treatment”

Revolutions are LONG overdue … 

Love this tweet from the Twittersphere ... 
... The answer to "Do (Did) you smoke?"
 after a #lungcancer diagnosis
..... "I Breathe." #lcsm #NoMoreBlameGame

  1. Once again I find the information and humor you offer us uplifting. Returned from Israel where I looked out over the Negev desert, not far from Herod's castle and said many prayers for you and your family. Came home and had my wedge resection with a few small glitches, stitches out tomorrow and "the news" around the corner. Please know that you and yours are in my prayers and thoughts OFTEN.
    God Bless, Gayle Pard

    1. Gayle ... thank you ... likewise you and yours are in my prayers
