Welcome to my page!
My name is Dana, and this is the second year I will be running/walking towards a cure for lung cancer. I was diagnosed March 5th 2019 with stage 2 lung cancer. As I am writing this, I am overwhelmed with emotion as today is 1 year since my lobectomy at the Royal Alex Hospital. It has been a very tough year for me, but I am grateful to be here and able to run for this cause. This cause is so important to me, not only for myself, but for the many people out there dealing with this disease daily. I will be running for my Mom who passed away 18 yrs ago from lung cancer, for those newly diagnosed, for those living with this everyday, and also for myself and people like me that pray for a cure.
Please join me and donate to this cause. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer. There needs to be a way to detect this terrible cancer sooner, so the chances of survival increase. Up to now, there have not been alot of advances in lung cancer and that needs to change, so every dollar you give will go towards lung cancer research and detection strategies.
I challenge you all to join me in this fight, and let's run for life!!
