This is very nice. I'm glad hospice didn't step in on these lung cancer patients and stop their medicine and just let them die. Everyone is so quick to assume that nobody can go into remission with lung cancer the same as you can with other cancers. Yes, you can and I've seen it many times. People should not be so quick to give up on lung cancer patients lives. I have a friend who is a 15 year lung cancer survivor. Don't give up on people with cancer so easily. Keep giving them their medicine and let God decide when it's time...not hospice, doctors or family.

If a person smokes, they are asking for it.

The real victims are those who have never touched tobacco.

Life is hard enough. Why up the ante by smoking. I have seen people taking chemo treatments only to go outside and light up. Thats alot of money and time spent on treatment for what? So you can live to smoke another day. Have at but please stop blowing it on us that don't smoke.

I've known lots of people who have had cancer that never smoked a day in their life, lung cancer included. Did you know most of our food is just as bad as cigarettes?
