I am really sad about the recent loss of a vibrant young member of the lung cancer community. Lizzie was just 27 years old when she passed. She was pregnant with her first child when she was diagnosed. She had never smoked, and was the picture of health. You can read the blog she kept of her journey with the link below. Stories like these are all too common. I have a many, many friends who have similar stories, who are managing to keep on breathing thanks to some of the awesome research and clinical trials going on, but until there are no more stories like Lizzie's, we have to keep pushing for more research, more funding, more awareness, better screening, and less stigma.
The world is poorer without you in it, Lizzie.
