Re: [MOL] Chris and lung cancer



It is so good to read this on lung cancer.  I know people who have made it;
but when I research lung cancer the good news is hard to find.  I will
mention; however; that if one has lung cancer and plural infusion then
radiation is not an option at this time.
Thanks again for the good news.  Your friend, lillian
