LUNGevity… Fight with me

You can help me fight against Lung Cancer and show your support for someone you know, or for my father.

Dad was in the ICU for a week.   The doctors said he was lucky to even be alive.  He had a massive blood clot in his lungs and pneumonia. They were also concerned about the ‘masses’ in his lungs.

He was officially diagnosed in February with Stage IIIB Lung Cancer.  (Read about Lung Cancer.) Let’s put it this way there are 9 stages in lung cancer.  He has stage 8.

As I assume with most people who are diagnosed with cancer, it came as a shock.  My father is only 56!! Lung Cancer!? A late stage!? In a single moment, it was as if years of his life were taken away.  Years from spending time with his grand-daughter McKinley, his wife, my sister, my brother, his brother…me…and many others. (To read my full story see earlier post: Cancer Diagnosis)

Lung cancer impacts one in 14 Americans and kills more than colorectal, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancers combined.

This Saturday, May 11th my family and I are participating in a walk against Lung Cancer sponsored by Breathe Deep Newark.   Fellow bloggers, please take part in the walk with us and join our team, The Terminators (if you live in town).  If you can’t make it, you can make a donation or sponsor one of our team members by clicking here: Terminators!
