Question:

My 51-year-old husband has just been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer that has metastasized to his liver. They are treating him with three days of chemotherapy every third Monday. No radiation therapy, no surgery. Yet the doctor says he has not probably had this even 6 months. What else should we do? Are they giving up on my husband before the fight even begins?
