My mom Shirley Leonpacher, and I’m going to include both her siblings, AJ and Jack, all died within two years of one another of the same type of lung cancer. That was 1998. Then we lost my brother in 2012, same cancer.

Thank you Isabella for this ride for early detection. I don’t get a prolonged cough nowadays without asking for a chest xray to confirm it’s NOT that cancer. Ride on, ride strong, live brilliantly. You inspire those far and wide and we are grateful.
