I am the writer behind many of the survivor stories on this website. It has been my privilege to interview lung cancer patients and survivors, each with their own remarkable story. For most, their diagnosis came as a shock. They have all endured various surgeries and treatment plans. All face an uncertain future. Theirs are stories of incredible accomplishments, successes, and hope. Many of them have become fierce advocates for lung cancer research and their hard work is yielding results.
While there has definitely been an improvement in the life expectancy of lung cancer patients, most will still succumb to the disease. It is important that we share those stories as well. That being said, this fundraising page is in memory of my father, Mark, who died of lung cancer in 2006. He was 67 years old.
Please consider donating to help fund more lung cancer research.
We honor those we’ve lost to lung cancer by raising funds for lung cancer research. It is through innovative and groundbreaking research that we can dramatically improve the survivorship of lung cancer patients. Because life should take your breath away. Not lung cancer.
