LUNG FORCE Heroes
My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2016. That was one of the worse days that I had ever experienced. The agony of watching my mother deteriorate was heart wrenching as well as eye opening.
I had to help her to make lifestyle changes in order for her to see that she was hurting herself as well as her family. The many years of smoking cigarettes damaged her lungs drastically, my mother eventually made the transition to heaven March 2017, that is the day I will always remember my life would never be the same.
