LUNG FORCE Heroes
I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Lung Cancer (non-small cell) in December 2018, and had to wait until March for another scan, when that scan was performed prior to my surgery, they found another mass in my left upper lobe and an area of concern in my right lower lobe. It is 2 months since having part of my right lung removed due to a malignant tumor. My oncologist told me to thank whoever sent me for the scan because that doctor saved my life. I am walking in the hope to spread awareness for early detection. I GOT THIS, it’s only 4 years and 10 months until, I’m cancer free.
