Re: [MOL] Claire



Thank you so much for sharing your story and look at you beating two types
of cancer cells.  Proud of you friend.  Lung cancers and most cancers can
have more than one type of cell cancer types.  I was shocked when I learned
that.  I had read on my own biopsy report that I had three distinct types of
cancer cells and then researched and found out about lung cancer and the
more I searched, the more I found.
love you, lillian
