If I had caught it earlier, surgery might have been an option with a 100% cure.

Did I happen to get this mutation of my lung cells due to some sort of damage?

Was it pneumonia scarring as a kid, pollution or something I consumed? Luckily, because I was otherwise so healthy and young, I had a lot of fight and responded well to chemo.

With a full-time job, house, social life, dating, cycling and traveling, how do you put it all on pause for an illness?

Back in 2007, I was burning the candle at both ends.

He died Oct 21, 2009, after only one dose of chemo which obviously didn’t get a chance to work.

He also grew up in West Virginia around the coal mines, which may have put arsenic in the water, another possible contributor to lung cancer in young people.

Laura passed away in 2014 from related complications, seven years after her lung cancer diagnosis. He was a non-smoker, 33 years old and had pneumonia as a child too– so badly that the doctors had already gotten his mom to sign the organ donor paperwork.

We hope her story will continue to serve as inspiration for others on the importance of early detection for lung cancer. Then his fully white left lung chest x-ray showed up Sept 1, 2009– his x-ray had been completely clear August 4.

Early detection and treatment is essential to long term recovery. I have great hope that I can live a long time at my current condition, thanks to the great targeted therapies, but really wish I had insisted on better x-rays or scans sooner. You can’t dwell on the past with “shoulda coulda” thoughts.
