There was a time when one would become deeply saddened by the news of a lung cancer diagnosis as it was almost certain that the disease was most likely to be a death sentence. However, with the progress in awareness campaigns, early detection and treatment - lung cancer has its share of survivors.
This week we focus on those who were diagnosed with lung cancer although they are non smokers. Linda Wortman is a 5 year cancer survivor who is actively engaged in bringing awareness to the disease educating others on the various ways that one can be exposed to carcinogens that causes lung cancer.
In addition, we have Chris Draft, a former professional football player who has formed an organization after losing his wife Lakeasha to lung cancer. The Chris Draft Family Foundation is on a mission to Change the Face of Lung Cancer. Learn more about their foundation >
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
