Dan Schwabe's Cancer Treatment

Dan’s Story

About a month ago Dan went in to the doctor for a physical and received some devastating and life changing news.  He has stage four non-small cell lung cancer.  Yes, healthy, fit, non-smoking Dan!!  We chose not to tell you all until we knew more facts and possible treatment plans...and for the church to get through Lent.  This is not operable nor curable but possibly maintainable. 

God has been so good already.  Just to give you a very short summary of the last month:

-    General doc saw lung spots

- Lung specialist ordered PET and CT scan
- Oncologist diagnosed stage four lung cancer that has metastasized to a few bone areas
- Good friend Nancy hooked us up with a newly retired U of M oncology nurse who got us in to THE BEST doc immediately
- He is a staff doc at the U on M med school with a specialty in lung cancer chemical trial studies
- We are now waiting to see if Dan qualifies for a immune-therapy treatment---so pray that he has mutated genes!
- Next week we will know more about further treatment
