LUNG FORCE Heroes

Deterice C.

I lost my mother on June 26, 2018, due to the fight of lung cancer. It was the worst pain one can ever feel, she fought so hard, she was a true believer in Christ. It seem as though I lost all my faith because I lost a part of me. My mother did several rounds of chemo as well as radiation. She endured so much pain, I would hate to see anyone suffer like she did. My father, as well as my two sisters and I did all we can to make her last days as comfortable as we can. We will continue to walk and participate in any area we can to fight against this nasty disease that's taking our love ones from us.
