Joan died of lung cancer July 29, 2018, at age 59, after 15 lines of treatment including three phase one clinical trials. She never smoked, but if you have lungs, then you can get lung cancer. Join us in this event in person or as a virtual participant, to raise awareness about lung cancer, help find better early detection for longer survival, and research better treatments for life.

Joan smiled throughout this journey and rejoiced in God. Whether good times or bad times, God is always with us through life's journey both here on earth and heaven. It's a choice how we respond to the unexpected. Sooner or later, we all die. Then what? Joan and I prayed that you would consider your eternal gift from God as well as your contributions to this cause and to life.
Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to our team, and we appreciate all the support we can get! Together we can make a difference! - Team Joan
* 433 people per day die of lung cancer in America. That's like a jumbo jet everyday!
* #1 cancer killer of women in America? lung cancer. LC kills more than breast, ovarian and cervical cancers, combined!
* Joan had an EGFR genetic mutation that was the primary driver of her lung cancer. If you get LC, then don't guess. Test. Get a broad panel of genomic testing to see what mutations are driving your LC because there are targeted therapies that are effective against specific mutations. The day of kill the bad and the good kill em all chemotherapy is going away.
* #1 cancer killer of men in America? lung cancer.
* Lung Cancer gets a fraction of federal research dollars per death compared to other research? why? we think because LC has a stigma. If you smoked, then you did it to yourself. Yet smoking causes more than 20 different types of diseases or cancers, not just lung cancer
