  • Fighting for Lung Cancer Patients: My experience at LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day
    March 30, 2016  |  Lysa B.
    I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer on September 27, 2011. I will never forget that day and the doctor's exact words: "You have lung cancer that has already spread to your spine."

  • LUNG FORCE: Celebrating Women's History Month and Fighting Lung Cancer with Valerie Harper
    March 25, 2016  |  Editorial Staff

    January 6, 2016  |  Kim Lacina
    After listing our home for sale, we received an offer, contingent upon a radon test and a mitigation system, if the level tested too high. I thought nothing of it since I had tested my home three years prior.

    January 6, 2016  |  Susan Rappaport
