LUNG FORCE Heroes
On December 24, 2002 my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was treated with chemo and radiation but died on June 7, 2003. That day changed my family's life forever.
Also, my husband suffers from asthma, my mother and brother suffer from COPD. My maternal grandfather's family has a history of suffering from severe lung disease over the years. As you can see, I have an interest in fighting lung disease any way I can. I want to help irradiate lung disease from the face of the earth.
