Tom McCarthy Sr. was diagnosed with Stage 3a lung cancer after a pretty sizable tumor had been discovered back in early October during a routine exam, eventually labeled as a non-small cell squamous carcinoma. After weeks of testing and evaluation, he is due to begin treatment tomorrow. He’s taking part in a clinical trial at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center which will include a mixture of chemotherapy and immunotherapy over the next 12 weeks and with the ultimate goal of operating to remove the mass.
It’s been a tough few months and we have a long road ahead but he’s in great hands and it’s amazing how far treatment has come… there’s a lot of love and support for Big Tom! So we’re keeping a positive outlook for a successful course of treatment and we appreciate the prayers and well-wishes for him and all his doctors and caregivers.
