LCRF 2019 Strides for Life
Dear friends and family
As you might know, I was diagnosed with lung cancer a little over a year ago and underwent a lobectomy to remove 1/5 of my lung. I was an unusual case as I had requested to have a CT scan without any symptoms. You see my mother died of lung cancer at the age of 53 and since I was embarking on my 50's I thought it was imperative to check my lungs. Considering I was not a smoker and I was very healthy my doctor thought this was not necessary but apeased me with an xray which in turn led to the CT scan I wanted. To everyone's surpise, I had lung cancer. How could that be, I was not feeling any symptoms in my boot camp classes and I just finished my annual cleanse and felt healthier than ever. However, as my doctor said, "if you have lungs, you too can get lung cancer".
What I also learned Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer, taking the lives of more people than breast, prostate and colon cancers combined. I felt that I needed to get out there and tell my story and that is why I joined the Lung Cancer Research Foundation. The Lung Cancer Research Foundation seeks to decrease the occurrence of lung cancer and increase the five year survival rate of lung cancer patients.
