TAKING STRIDES FOR LUNG CANCER RESEARCH
In the spring of 2016, at the age of 57, I was diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer. Prior to that time, I had been having chest pain and pain in my left shoulder. I also had recurrent bronchial pneumonia for probably 20 years with various lung issues. The chest pain was so bad in April of 2016; I thought I was having a heart attack, so I went to the hospital. An X-ray was performed and a nodule was discovered. I was then sent for a CT scan and the results indicated it was likely lung cancer. I have never smoked a day in my life.
