asthma and lung cancer

Was able to beat lung cancer even though I have had controlled asthma since I was 4 years old. I've been in in remission since 2017. I also am in remission from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for 8 years However, recently, I was diagnosed with rare Merkel cell carcinoma. stage IV and I'm being treated with Keytruda infusions. Through all of this I've been able to hold my own with chronic asthma.
