Mom Has Stage 4 Lung Cancer

I just got a call from my mother’s husband. She’s back in the hospital. They have diagnosed her with stage 4 lung cancer. They said without chemo she has about 6 months, with chemo maybe a year or so.

After all she’s been through with this cancer stuff, now this. It seems she just can’t get a break. I’m over 1,000 miles away and feel powerless to help her. Of course realistically there’s actually nothing I could do if I were there.

He’s supposed to call me back on Monday after speaking with the specialist. They may or may not decide to operate, that’s going to be decided by the specialist. At this stage surgery may be pointless. I just have to wonder, with all of the testing and follow up she’s had, how could they have missed this for so long that it’s progressed to stage 4 before they caught it?

Needless to say I am kind of torn up about it at the moment. Please pray for her if you’re so inclined.

:hug: love and hugs to both you and your mum. I’m not the praying type but your family will be in my thoughts. I and many others on KH are here to offer you as much support as we can so you can be strong to support your mum and her husband. Please know that if you ever want to talk, rant or mumble then we are nothing but a mouse click away:hug:

Mason I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Of course she as well as you and the rest of your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

:hug: I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m so sorry… Your mom, you and your family are in my thoughts :hug:And as others said - we’re here for you, whenever you need us.

So, so sorry. You and your family are in my prayers.

Oh Mason, I am so sorry. My heart goes out to you and your family!:hug::hug::hug::hug:

Good thoughts to you both and to your stepfather.

:grphug: I’m so sorry, Mason! I understand the helpless feeling when you are so far apart.

She will be in my prayers.

Oh my, Mason. I am so sorry to hear this.

I do understand what you mean about wanting to be with her. I’m sure that if you call her, the sound of your voice will soothe her heart.

I will be praying…you can count on that.


I am so sorry Mason :hug:

I’m so sorry. You’ll all be in my prayers.

I’m so sorry to hear about your mom Mason. You and your mom will be in my thoughts. :hug: :hug: :hug: :heart: :heart: :heart:

It just doesn’t seem fair sometimes. I will be thinking of you and your Mom. I hope you will be able to see her soon.

Im so sorry Mason. I will keep her in my thoughts.

So sorry to hear about your mother and you will both be in my prayers. I lost my grandmother to lung cancer and one of my friends is losing her FIL with whom she is very close. It is a horrible thing and I’m so sorry your mom has to go through this.

Oh, Mason – how awful, especially after the hopeful report she got the last time.

She knows you love her and wish you could see her; hope you can soon.

Mason I am so sorry to hear this. :pray: Prayers coming your way. Have a friend who just went through treatment for lung cancer. He is 79 and has heart problems but came through treatment and now is recovering. I wish the best for your Mom. Some times life is just not fair.


we :heart: you and your family.
