Survivor Stories


In less than five months, Janet went from a diagnosis of Stage IV lung cancer, with chest pain and shortness of breath, to resuming a normal life.

Lung cancer experts with the Leo W. Jenkins Cancer Center were able to eval­uate her disease and get her symptoms under control. They used a three-drug chemotherapy regimen designed to help her feel better and control the pro­gression of her disease.

Surprisingly, Janet has experienced no nausea and has not lost her hair. She’s been able to care for her husband and four children and even return to work. She never imagined she’d have such a positive outcome.
