Jill Feldman, who lost five close relatives to lung cancer, was an early advocate for lung cancer research. Then she was diagnosed with lung cancer … and still sees herself as the “story of hope.” Watch to find out why.

Donations to LUNGevity help provide support services to people like Jill, as well as funding for research projects to get the science from the lab to the patient faster. Because of this cutting-edge research, and the donors who support it, there is hope.
