Bobbi J F

I was diagnosed in 2013 with stage 3 lung cancer. I've never smoked. I didn't have symptoms. I was 39. I just gave birth to a baby girl, Katherine Grace.

As a new mom, I underwent 6 months of chemo, radiation and surgery which resulted in an 18 month remission. They say that's a long remission for lung cancer! Last summer, my cancer returned....stage 4....progressing to my kidney and brain. I am in the fight of all fights and happy to breathe each and every day for my family, for my husband, my daughter...for me!.

Let's stop and remove the stigma once and for all....lung cancer is not a "smoker's disease". No one "deserves this. If you have lungs, you too can get lung cancer...
