    Q: What inspired you to enter lung cancer research and treatment?
    A: I have been fortunate to have had great mentors who taught me a lot about caring for patients with lung cancer.  It doesn’t take long to get inspired to work to find better therapies for our patients.  We have a lot to offer in terms of care, but much work is still to be done to do better for our patients.

  • She made a difference.

    She made a difference.

    Katie: diagnosed in March of 2007 at age 41 with NSCLC with a primary tumor of 9cm in her mediastinum. She passed on on Sunday December 9 2007 at 2:20pm. She fought with everything she had, she went into the hospital the Sunday before and never came home. She refused to be put on a ventilator and refused to go home with all of the tubes and such. She was a beautiful spirit inside and out, a true Princess and she was my sister-in-law and mother of four children ages 8-17. Katie posted almost daily on the caringbridge website and gave hope and inspiration to all that read her notes.

  • My Mom: Our Hero!!!

    By: FreeToBreathe

    December 18 2013

    My story is in regards to my mother. Even though we lost my mom on June 22, 2007 from small cell lung cancer, she is an inspiration to me and others around her because even in the face of death she never gave up hope and her love for life. My mom was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago. For the past year and a half, she had been going through extensive chemo and radiation treatments. However about three months ago, my mom had a doctor visit in which we learned that the cancer had come back all over and basically we would need to start to prepare ourselves!!
