Scott Reid lost his wife to lung cancer 19 days after they were married. It has been 15 months since she passed away. She was 46 years old.
Surviving for only a year with stage 4 lung cancer is not unusual. It’s a fact that weighs on the mind of a person like me, who got a stage 4 diagnosis last March.
“You read the statistics on lung cancer and you hope and pray your case will be the exception,” says Reid. “But as time goes by, you realize it’s not.”
His words send chills up my spine.
I don’t know when my end will come, but so far Gail’s story sounds a lot like mine. I also had good health through middle age, then wham! Diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.
