Fighting Cancer: 2013 is actually a year long series of posts that I wrote during my first year of battle with lung cancer.
On November 12, 2012, I was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer and was thrown into a world I could have never imagined.

This is my personal story of diagnosis, treatment and all that goes with chemo, the medical professionals who are standing by, my family, friends, my dog, and my roller coaster of emotions that threw me daily into tailspins of sadness, fear, and victory.

Lung cancer is stigmatized and many people feel that those who have lung cancer have brought it on themselves. When the fact is that many people (60%) of those diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked or have quit years ago. I had not smoked for 18 years when I was diagnosed at 59.

My name is April Brewster Smythe, and I am a writer, a mother, and grandmother. I live in my hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana and am surrounded by familiar things.
