LUNG FORCE Heroes
I, myself, suffer with asthma. I was diagnosed when I was 29. My father passed when I was 33 from lung cancer. My mother passed when I was 42 from lung and colon cancer.
My aunt, my mother's sister, has COPD and is a lung cancer survivor. I have taken care of her (in my home) for the past 12 years and wouldn't change it for anything. Two years ago doctors told me there was nothing that could be done and I love that lung education has helped me with this journey.
