Deterice C.

I lost my mother to lung cancer June 26, 2018, the hardest thing in life. It hurt to see her suffer but it hurt even more to see her pass away.

A lot of people don't realize that lung cancer is the number one cancer to cause death. People support and do everything to support breast cancer not knowing it's a tremendous need of support to help find more ways to beat lung cancer,as well as to help those fighting this nasty disease.

I wish we can spread the news and get as much support as breast cancer does. I lost my mother to this nasty disease called lung cancer.
