" Some people say I talk morbid, but I talk reality there is nothing to avoid here in my conversation," said Betty Henderson, Orleans. The 57-year-old Orleans woman has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. " There is nothing that can be done for me, my kidneys are now shot, and they can only keep me comfortable,"

" I am taking my prognosis one day at a time. They have not given me a timetable in how much I have time left," said Henderson.

In Betty's advice to those who are facing similar circumstances she says, " Stay positive, being positive makes a huge difference," And for those facing similar circumstances " Do not be afraid to ask for help,"
