LUNG FORCE Heroes
I was diagnosed with Stage IV non-small cell adenocarcinoma last February. I was a 58 year old never-smoker and was stunned by the diagnosis. I'm being treated with targeted chemotherapy and so far am fortunate that it is still working. I wish people would understand that anyone can get lung cancer and funding needs to be increased, like it is for more popular cancers like breast cancer.
