Linda P., CO
In 2010, at age 42, I was diagnosed with stage III lung cancer. My life has been forever changed. The side effects from chemotherapy and radiation have made it impossible for me to ever return to work. I can’t even walk around the block without lugging an oxygen tank with me. Trying to make it up and down the stairs in my own house is a challenge every day.
I never expected to see my life change so much before I was 50-years-old. But I'm very lucky to still be alive today. I get to enjoy the simple pleasures like watching my 5-year-old granddaughter grow up.
Thank you for providing the information on your website that you do. It is very helpful. Thanks!!!
