hi waterboy so sorry you are going thru this disease. I wasn’t trying to make anyone depressed I just needed some answers to help my father. I took care of my mother with advanced ovarian cancer and it was tough. I’m trying to help my dad feel better. I checked with my fathers lung doctor to see if I could add some vitamins and herbs and they said yes that it couldent hurt. hope you have a great holiday susan
