I want to do what I can, while I can, to raise awareness for lung cancer in the hope that future generations will benefit from both early diagnosis and treatments that will make lung cancer a chronic illness rather than a terminal disease. I also want to share the tools that have helped me make the two years since my diagnosis the most joy-filled years of my life. To that end, I am embarking on a bike ride across the United States during which I will be engaging with communities along the way to raise awareness for lung cancer as well as connecting with lung cancer patients and survivors to share information and inspiration.

I would ask that you please take a few minutes and read the facts about lung cancer on this site and share them with people you love. No one is immune from lung cancer. Everyone should know the facts. For those of you challenged with a cancer diagnosis or caring for someone who is, please read the Thrive section of the site that details tools and resources available to help maintain physical and emotional strength with a cancer diagnosis.

Together we can find solutions and learn to find joy in the process.
