LUNG FORCE Heroes
I lived a very healthy life working out, eating right, never smoked, don't drink and then my body started to feel different. I began to experience back pain to the point of where I couldn't do many of my daily routines due to the pain and I was losing a lot of weight. My dentist noticed my gums were not healing from an earlier procedure and questioned whether I had been sick. To my surprise my back pain was a result of my health showing in my gums which lead me to get an MRI on my back and there is where my doctor saw three legions on my spine and the saga of my stage 4 lung cancer journey begun on November 21, 2018 the day before Thanksgiving and my life changed from that day going forward.
