Lung Cancer Survivor Spotlight

This week we received an email from Maggie Smith.  Her husband, Nate, went to high school with Elizabeth.  This past April, at age 27, Maggie was diagnosed with a rare neuroendocrine cancer of the lung.  She has since had half of her left lung and bronchus removed.  Doctors are hopefully they removed it in time to prevent its return.  Maggie reached out to us to share her story because Elizabeth and Living for Liz were on her mind during the process.  Maggie told us, “I never met her (Elizabeth), and yet her story and experiences and the awareness raised by this group helped to shape my own lung cancer diagnosis.”  It’s bittersweet and amazing, and there’s nothing more we could hope for than stories like these because it means we are making a difference; we are creating true change.  Please share Maggie’s story, and please join us on November 14th for our Bet On A Cure for Lung Cancer fundraising event.  November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month — November 10th is Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Day– and we need your help.

OUR IMPACT- 2014

It’s hard to believe that our second full year as Living For Liz has already passed!  Our goals when we started were simple.  First and foremost we wanted to help lung cancer patients that didn’t have the incredible support that Elizabeth had by starting our very own Patient Assistance programs.  Secondly we wanted to help fund, and therefore advance, lung cancer research so other families didn’t have to go through what we went through.  And lastly we set a plan in place so that we could grow every year.  We are so thrilled that we have been able to meet all three goals in each of our first two years!
