I am retired 54 yr old female L.E. officer and Military Vet. On Feb 5,2018 I was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma (non-smoker) even in the military. I had a lobectomy on April 20 of this year. I am currently 5 weeks post-op. I am up to walking a mile a day only because I refuse allow myself to be defeated however, I have been in pretty good spirits up on till today. I have a consistent cough trying to use inhalers (doctor said it would help with breathing). I believe that I am being hard on myself at this point I am still wrapping my head around let alone have had cancer but being a cancer survivor.

I am truly blessed because I caught the cancer early not the doctors. With the Veterans Administration you have to be persistent in a way you are almost looked at as if you are crazy. After the lobectomy I was told that it was Stage 1A. I was also told I needed no chemo or radiation. I was happy and humbled at the same time. I wanted to get involved with a community because I feel I am taking care of my self physically now the emotions are starting to set in. I know I am not alone.

With what you had done air quality will be a major issue and it isn't good in LA or most of SoCal.
