Help me improve lung cancer outcomes!
When mom lost her voice in February, 2011, no one thought it was anything more than a severe sore throat. After a few weeks and no improvement, many tests and doctors visits, we learned that she had a paralyzed vocal chord that was being choked by cancerous growths. In March 2011, my mom Terry was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer. She had cancerous growths on both of her lungs, in her lymph nodes and several leisions on her brain. Mom went through numerous chemo and radiation treatments to fight off the cancer, but less than two years from her diagnosis, the cancer overpowered her body and she was taken by this terrible disease.
While I miss my mom everyday, I at least had 29 amazing years with her. My son will never have a chance to meet her, talk with her, hug her, play with her. I hate cancer, in all of its numerous forms and want to do something to help raise awareness, but also help fight it, in any way that I can. Cancer has taken too many of my loved ones and has touched too many lives. It needs to be stopped. LCRF's goal is to double lung cancer survival rates by 2022 and I want to help reach that goal.
Mom always did so much and gave everything she could for me, so it's only natural that I want to give back and fight lung cancer in her memory. You too can help fight lung cancer by donating to LCRF. Any contribution you can make, no matter how big, is a step in the fight against lung cancer. Your support means so much!
