Karen B.

I am an eight year lung cancer survivor. I was blessed with early detection.

My internist requires a chest X-ray each year during my annual physical. The radiologist found something suspicious that year. In October 2015, they removed the lower left lobe of my lung and the lymph nodes - Stage 1A. I had surgery only - no chemo or radiation.

It is so important that we find a cost-effective and safe way to screen for lung cancer, just like we have mammogram, colonoscopy, and PSA screening.
