In May, 2013 I noticed a cough that wouldn't go away. After many visits to my primary care provider, two chest x-rays, and trying several allergy medicines with inhalers to no avail I asked for a second opinion. Since I have never smoked, and take care of myself, my physician did not suspect cancer. In August, 2014 I saw another physician who ordered a CT Scan of my chest, this is when I learned that I had a tumor in my left lung. That same week a PET scan confirmed that the cancer had spread to my ribs, spine and hip. Until my diagnosis, I did not realize that lung cancer was so poorly funded, and that the prognosis was so poor. I believe that everyone deserves a chance at life, smoker or non-smoker. I have lost family members and friends (smokers and non-smokers) to lung cancer, so my goal in all of this is to help raise awareness and end the stigma associated with this disease. You can help by spreading the word through Team Draft, attending fundrasining events, as well as writing your congressman and state senators. Let's all get involved and help find a cure!
