LUNG FORCE Heroes
My mother died of lung cancer at the age of 54. Although she was a smoker, she never felt sick, and didn't experience coughing or any other warning signs. Her father also died of lung cancer in his 60s. My brothers and I are approaching 50.
With such a strong family history, early detection could save our lives.
