Pat Grover is a New Jersey native who spends most of her time in Florida. When she began to have pain and discomfort in her shoulder and elbow, she sought answers from doctors there. She was shocked to learn the diagnosis was stage IV lung cancer—and that there was no hope. Pat decided to come home to New Jersey—to the Lung Cancer/Thoracic Oncology Program at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey—for a second opinion. After reviewing her case, doctors here, led by Dr. Joseph Aisner, felt something wasn't right with her initial diagnosis. They conducted additional tests and discovered that Pat suffered from a rare genetic disorder and, in reality, had stage III lung cancer. Her cancer was treatable. Since undergoing treatment, the nodules in Pat's lungs have decreased in density and she is hopeful that her progress will continue.
