Lynn Shih, a nurse who was used to being a caregiver herself, was
diagnosed with NSCL in 2011. She advises others newly diagnosed with lung cancer to gather all the support that they can, from
anyone with whom they feel comfortable sharing their story. Having lung cancer "...just makes me more of an advocate...to really get the word out there and make people aware."
Donations to LUNGevity help provide support services to people like Lynn, as well as funding for translational lung cancer research projects to get the science from the lab to the patient faster. To date, LUNGevity has supported 100 projects at 56 institutions in 23 states.
Because of this cutting-edge research, and the donors who support it, there is hope.
