Have you Ever Thought that Much About Lung Cancer?
This journey did not start out easy and my recurrence this summer placed a small bump in the road along the way; however, there have been many positive and rewarding pieces of my journey with the most important one being all of the amazing fellow survivors and families who have lost loved ones to this disease I have met along the way! Keep on helping me raise awareness about this deadly cancer...your support and voice does make a difference in this fight!
United Voices 2020
Most survivors are told from the time of their diagnosis there is no cure for the stage of their disease, so they must rely on advancements in treatments and medicine for the rest of their lives. That comes with its own set of challenges because lung cancer remains one of the lowest federally funded cancers, despite being the deadliest. This awareness is necessary for progress to happen. Help us erase the stigma so we can move towards increasing survival rates of lung cancer.
