LUNG FORCE Heroes

Catherine W.

If you are looking for a happy ending...do not read this story about my hero, my daughter, Tiffany.

In November 2014, she was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer. In January 2015, she died four days after surgery to remove the tumor. Tiffany was only 31 years young, and never smoked. How and why remains a mystery.

What I have found out is that this disease is taking its toll on our young women! She would have never known the tumor was there if not for an accident that required an MRI. It's stealthy, evil, and a cure must be found!
