LUNG FORCE Heroes
I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer nearly three years ago. I was as healthy as I could be, I thought. I went to the doctor because I was gaining weight that I couldn't lose. I thought I had thyroid problems. I didn't have thyroid problems. I had stage IV adenocarcinoma of the lungs.
I wasn't expected to live for very long, but I got into a clinical trial in July 2013 for immunotherapy. Immunotherapy has given me back my life. I love to run agility with my dogs, garden, hang out with friends, live life. I only slow down when I go for my infusion every 2 weeks. It is a miracle!!!
