My husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer 6 months ago, he seems to be doing well. It's hard to beleive.
It doesn't seem to me like he's only got six months left. How does cancer progress, is it very quick at the end. His cancer is Unknown primary, which means they don't know where it started, but it is now in his lungs.


I am very sorry to hear this all I can say is pray for gods help.
God Bless your family.

Every case is different. I recently had a friend who
passed from it and he didn't have it that long. But
he was a smoker and drinker (not a chain smoker or
alcoholic) but it did its damage. I'm not sure where
the cancer started but in the end he had it in his
spine too. From the time he was diagnosed to the
time he passed on wasn't even a year.

All cancers progress differently and affect people differently.
My dear 83 year old father, God rest his soul, endured 3 months of cancer. All I can say is spend as much time with your husband, and show him how much you love him, cherish every moment and take life minute by minute. And I will pray that God gives you the strength to weather this storm and I will also say a prayer for your husband that he survives.

Dear Barbara, Please don;t dwell on six months, I know its a lot to take in, and its frustrating, to thing you can't fix it. But you must in someway find the strength, to go on . There are miracles., so hope to the end. Take to him, do something that he always wanted to . but never did. This is if you can. I have been there with my daughter who thank God lasted just under 2 years But those last 2 weeks, were hell. and relief, and joy of being there with her, So don't dwell on death, enjoy every moment you have together, my prayers will be for you and your family. God Bless.

A certain percentage of cancers disappear on their own , so ,as long as he is breathing there is hope.Ronnie Hawkins had it four years ago , he was given 8 months . than he went back for another c - scan and it was gone.Dont give up .

I guess your husband is coping well. Allow him to enjoy life. Be there for him. Support him through this stage. Cancer varies...some spread too fast. Some are slow growing. Let him eat healthy foods and live a normal life as well.
Miracles do happen...and I hope your husband gets his miracle.
God bless you both!

No one knows the time You chose to passed away. My mother usually sais that.
I know cases of people who said 1year and they are still alive.

My dad died from Lung cancer in 05. So I understand.
Have you been on the Daily Strength website? It is great for any thing life throws at you. You can find other people going through the same thing.

email me @[email protected] I can send you the link.

im so sorry, my husband passed away 15 months ago from prostrate cancer,he was 54. the progression of cancer would depend on what kind it is, and to were else it has spread. no matter what, dont give up hope! miracles do happen, and i hope one happens for you and your husband. my prayers are with you both..mary.

Hugs, you have my thoughts and prayers. Cherish all life's moments.
I do know that it depends on the cancer, sometimes it progresses quickly, sometimes not. I took care of my grandfather, he had pancreatic cancer. It progressed very quickly. It seemed like one minute he was grandpa, the next just a shell of the person I knew. But in it always, I knew it was my grandpa. I count it a priviledge to have cared for him.
Take care and you and your husband will not be far from my thoughts and prayers.

My prayers are with you and your husband. I wish I had answers for you, it can be very quick once it hits the lungs, but then if the type of cancer he has isn't a fast growing type, he can last a while. I believe God can take care of the cancer, he did for me 14 years ago.

May God Bless you both

I am a nurse at an oncology hospital so I am drawning from my experience there.
Lung cancer can be fast or slow depending on it's type (small cell vs. non small cell.)
with that said- I have seen miracles in both fast and agressive cancer and the slower spreading ones.
Most cells go through a cycle of growing and dying (apoptosis). When a cancer cell mutates it in away becomes "imortal" The mechnism that is used to trigger cell death goes haywire and your body keeps on producing more and more. some of these cells break off and move to other parts of the body- this is called metastisis.

Secondly and MOST IMPORTANTLY: NEVER let a Doctor try to give you a "death date" Doctors know general ideas but they are not God, and last I checked people don't come with an exact date of experation when they are born.

Lastly never give up hope- research all your options, inform yourself on every medication. By empowering yourself with information it helps you make the best choice for your family.

Hello Im very sorry to hear about your husband.I just found out my mother has small cell lung cancer.Its a very large tumor in both lungs doctors havent told us how long she may have.I just wish you the best.And Im glad he is doing well.

If it is unknown primary, but mas metastisized to the lungs, then there's a possibility that it has spread to other organs or the bones, but has not yet been detected.
Doctors always give their best guess when they say how much time a patient might have left. He must have either a type thats known to progress rapidly, or large/many masses in the lungs.
In my experience as an occupational therapist, I have seen many patients "fight" the disease until the end, but this often means more treatments, some new chemo, more radiation, and more time in the hospital away from loved ones and feeling sick.
Although you never want to give up hope, I recommend that you make the home as comfortable and easy for him to get around in as is possible, preparing for the worsening of his illness.
A hospice service should be consulted if not already done, and you will likely have to ask family to assist with your husband's care, or get some private help in to assist.
There will come a point where you husband has weeks, or just days left, and that precious time should be spent with loved ones, at home.

you should repair his immune system....it is not functioning properly...100% natural enzyme thereapy is the best in the market for whatever disease...it would supplement the enzyme that is lacking in your immune system to make it self sustaining...it already cured plenty of cancer,diabetic,lupus,kidney and heart problems and many other ailment including hiv...and simple problems as skin disorder...oversweating...sleeping disorders…variety of allergies etc...if you are interested you may email me I may be of help...thanks

My husband was diagnosed March 20th last year he went thru chemo radiation gamma knife procedure and took a drug called tarceva.(tarceva has had good results) Unfortunately he passed June 6th. I truly never thought he would leave me even tho the docs told me it was terminal and how long he had. I still cant believe it. Spend as much time as you can with him. do research see if there is a treatment that is promising. Good luck to you both. It is a horrible thing to go thru. I am so sorry for you I will think you good thoughts

Hope can never be taken away. EVER. everyones case is different and God always has a plan even if it may not seem right or fair to us. He sent His only son to die for us to take our place. We didn't deserve it but he did so that we may have eternal life if we believe...that's it. Things won't be easy here, nor will they be easy to understand or without pain, but eternity will be different. I will be praying for you and your family. I HAVE BEEN THERE.

My grandfather was diagnosed with lung cancer four years ago. They removed 1/3 of his left lung. About 5 months ago, he was diagnosed again with lung cancer. (He hasn't smoked in 20 years, so it was not because he kept smoking.) He just died 2 weeks ago. He kept going to chemotherapy, even though he was told he had 6 months or less. The last few weeks, the chemotherapy was almost killing him. He was in and out of the hospital. Within the last few days he lost his sight, hearing, and the ability to walk. He was given a cathater and sat in bed until he died. It does sneak up on you. You can't believe the results and they just look so normal and healthy. Then you come home one day and they can't see you.

This part is going to be the hardest. But you are going to want to make sure that he has all of his funeral planned out (unless he doesn't want to.) Make sure he is as happy as possible. Take him to do the things that he wanted to but never had the chance. In the last couple days it will kill you. Stay strong, and pray. You'll survive this. It just takes strength. Most importantly, you need to be strong for him.

You don't say if your husband is getting chemo or radiation. Whether he is or not, there are nutritional things you can do to help your body maintain optimum health. Dr. Weil, who is an MD and also an expert on nutrition, gives excellent advice on this subject. You can read his suggestions at: http://www.drweil.com

He practices integrative medicine using all the advantages of modern medicine, and healthy nutrition as well as a "mind-body-spirit" approach.

I like to quote a phrase from the Hippocratic Oath "First do no harm..." This approach to wellness and disease management (including cancer) supports that.

Five hundred years ago, people said the world was flat. Today, people say that if the FDA and AMA haven't blessed something, it can't be real good. Well, here's something I know to be real AND good. It's a little different take on cancer treatment--

In 1990, I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma, stage 3-B, but I've survived. My doctors were great people, but they were limited to surgery, chemo and radiation by profitable AMA treatment policy. During the year in treatment, I started learning about alternative medicine. I'm a retired engineer, and this is what I've pieced together--our IMMUNE SYSTEMS become weakened by poor nutrition, lack of exercise and reduced oxygen. Once that happens, our body becomes vulnerable to common STRESSORS. Stressors can be environmental, like viruses, heavy metals, pesticides, food additives, electromagnetic waves or pollution. They can be internal things like emotional or job stress, or poisonous people in our lives. Aging is also a contributing factor. So this means:

WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM + STRESSORS = DISEASE (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc.)

Our bodies have 60 trillion--yes, trillion--cells, and there are always some mutating into cancer cells, but a healthy immune system kills them before they have a chance to get a foothold in the body.

It takes a LONG time, usually, or a high level of stressors, to weaken the immune system to the point where it won't do its job, but once cancer has formed, it will generally spread rapidly.

THIS IS IMPORTANT! There are ways to BEAT cancer that are currently being used in Europe and around the world, and there are some great books on the subject. I know because I've read about 50 of them from cover to cover. Here's a list of the best ones. Some are out of print and getting hard to find--

"The Cure for All Cancers", ISBN 0963632825
"The Cure for All Advanced Cancers", ISBN 1890035165
"A Cancer Therapy", ISBN 0882681052
"Oxygen Therapies", ISBN 0962052701
"Hydrogen Peroxide--Medical Miracle", ISBN 1885236077
"The Natural Cure for Cancer--Germanium", ISBN 0533071410
"Killing Cancer", ISBN 0705000966
"Natural Cures 'They' Don't Want You to Know About", ISBN 0975599518

I know of people whose cancer has 'spontaneously remitted' (WENT AWAY for no known reason) AFTER they went on programs of herbs and nutrition to restart their immune systems.

You and your family must look out for yourselves to stand a chance of being healthy. This is not a joke, and I'm not selling anything--just trying to help.
I am using the things I learned in those books right now to fight off a second infestation of cancer. I've been at it for over a year now, and think I'm going to make it. Use what works for you, and pass on your success. Best of luck.

The American Medical Association (AMA) and the pharmaceutical companies control medical law and the FDA in this country with heavy lobbying and a revolving door policy. WHY would they want to do this? It's about the money. In 2006, medicine (doctors, hospitals, researchers and pharmaceutical firms) received 2.1 TRILLION dollars--15% of the total earnings (GNP 13.7 trillion) in the U.S. This is astounding! It means MILLIONS of people worked the whole year just to pay the nation's medical expenses!! That's totally astounding, and just too big to care about individuals.

Watch the film at this website--

N0V-002 (novo-two) is a New adjunct medication used with standard chemotherapy tested for approval in the USA.

Increased the ability of patients to tolerate Chemo to the full 100%
Increased the Cancer Survival rate by 80%

They are accepting some patients under FDA Fast Track SPA Phase III in the USA.

Script is available outside the USA:


Novelos' pipeline of drugs is based on oxidized glutathione, a natural metabolite that is part of the glutathione pathway. This pathway is the primary determinant of intracellular redox (oxidation/reduction) potential and, as such, plays a key role in cell protection (e.g. detoxification) and in regulation of cell signaling pathways (e.g. leading to cytokine production). Novelos’ lead products are believed to act, in part, via post-translational modification (glutathionylation) of critical regulatory proteins that mediate processes including immune function, cell proliferation and tumor progression (in combination with chemotherapy). They may also sensitize tumor cells to certain chemotherapeutic drugs by modifying drug detoxification processes.

Sorry to hear that ...I had a friend that was given only 4 months to live, he had lung cancer and it spread to the surrounding lymph nodes but he lived 1 1/2 years..I guess ya never know...Hang in there!

I was very lucky. I had large cell lymphoma, that was 15 years ago I've been free. My heart goes out to you. I can't even think of the right words to say. God Bless!!

Miss Julia
I lost my father to lung cancer 9 years ago. The end is very sudden, please dont read up on it, We (my mom and I made that mistake) and we ended up feeling his death before he died. Enjoy your man while he is here, and spend every moment with him as if its the last. Don't worry about the end now, please just absorbe the moment now. Knowing about his death will make it worse, take one day at a time and be strong. I hope he gets a miricle recovery.

The power of suggestion is very strong, especially when people are sick. Some cancers stage itself (disease progression) so typically that the doctors can put a time line to it. Thus the 6 months etc.
Count your husband lucky to be one of the at least 5-10% who do not follow the time line of the cancer.
Dont blame your doctor for repeating what the books and medical experience written about the cancer say.
It is probably due to the unknown nature of the cancer. Your husbands case can very well be written up under "exceptions"? You never know.
Celebrate life. Your doctor will just be as happy as you are and say "keep on doing what you are doing"

No one knows how each individual will do and for how long. It must be so hard for you too, knowing he will be leaving you. I do hope that he will be spared any painful treatments as my neighbor had ( lung also). It sort of gave false hope and he really wasn't comfortable. Be strong

doctors give a prognosis, but that is an estimation. My grandfather had liver cancer and was given 6 months, lived 3 years. I am not trying to give you false hope here, just telling you that doctors give an estimate based on a median.

Since the origin of his cancer is unknown it's difficult to tell, what you can do is give him quality of life when that moment comes.
Share the most you can with him, tape on video the moments you have together, and pray. In this age of non-believers, prayer is very comforting and it does help us in accepting what is going to come.

I was given 18 months to live 5 years ago -so much for doctor's predicitions (and I myself am a doctor!). The thing about cancer is that you really do not get sick until the end, unlike many diseases (heart failure, Alzheimers). Think of Peter Jennings the newsman. I suggest you go to pbs.org and find Leroy Siever's blog and sign up. He is an ABC executive producer who has recurrent colon cancer in his brain and lungs and is doing pretty good and writes about it.

Good luck
