Honoring Tracy Graham, Our Steel Magnolia
My mother, Tracy Graham, passed away on Sunday, November 22nd. Though technically she died of COVID-19, she was also receiving both chemotherapy and radiation treatment for Stage III Non Small Cell Lung Cancer.
When she was first diagnosed with cancer, I read something (I can't recall where) saying that Lung Cancer does not receive the same amount of support as other types of cancer since it is so often self-inflicted due to smoking. While that may be true, I believe those who are afflicted by this terrible illness deserve just as much of a chance at life as anyone else. For that to happen, more money is needed for research.
In the days since her passing, several people have asked me what they can do, where they can send money or flowers. My heart, while broken, is also overflowing with the generosity and kindness so many have shown. It soothes my heart to know how many people loved my mother and mourn her absence from this earth. If you would like to donate to something in her memory, I hope you will consider donating to the Lung Cancer Research Foundation.
