as her first diagnosis. She never smoked, but we grew up in the heart of dark fired tobacco in KY. Everybody smoked. Crop dusting, all sorts of chemical stuff. Interestingly, her older sister had a similar tumor and their mother had lung cancer which spread to her cardiac muscles. Maybe it was something in the 200 year old house they lived in.
She is now 5 years cancer free. She went to hell and back but she had a fairly encapsulated tumor and ultimately lost a lobe of the affected lung. She went to MD Anderson (from South Carolina) and participated in some new protocols being tested there.
So it can happen but it's a long shot. He is filthy rich and will be able to take advantage of things the average person will never even know about.
My condolences to both of the posters whose mother died of this awful disease.
