Monica S.

My grandmother was a nonsmoker who was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer in May 2017. It was disheartening to hear when she was trying to get a check up on her pneumonia, which had persisted for several weeks. I hope to bring awareness to those around me to get out and make sure they exercise and to check up on their health every year. The little things are what counts so I'm hoping that together we are able to all fight against lung cancer.
