This past week, I was given the honor to deliver the keynote address at the Opening Ceremonies of the World Conference on Lung Cancer from the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) in Denver. In front of about 3,000 oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, researchers, patients and pharmaceutical representatives, I shared not only my story, but the patient perspective, focusing on the need for aggressive treatment and pushing the boundaries of the standard of care.
Below is a video of my speech – make sure to watch through to the surprise ending!
If you are under 40 and have lung cancer, PLEASE sign up for the ALCF’s study, Genomics of Young Lung Cancer. It is open to young patients form around the world. More information HERE.
Much love, live in the moment.
