LUNG FORCE Heroes
My story is about my husband. He was diagnosed at the age of 46, no symptoms besides shoulder pain. He was working every day, thinking it would just disappear. It didn't - it got worse. It took 6 months for the tests to reveal that yes, it was lung cancer. That was 10 years ago. Keep up with your doctor appointments and trust in what your body is telling you. Today, my husband is very active with his grandkids, teaching Sunday school and continues to play sports. This battle can be won - never give up.
