LUNG FORCE Heroes
My mother died of lung cancer at the young age of 44. I was only 10 years old when it happened and I recently turned 44 this last month. Her cancer could have been cured if it was detected earlier. I want to represent my state to advocate for more funding for lung disease programs, cleaner air, and affordable healthcare.
