Reaching new heights…I’m on a billboard!

Check out this CBS LA News piece that aired yesterday (click on the video below)! Honored and grateful that CBS is shedding a light on young lung cancer by highlighting me and my friend, Sandy Jauregui-Baza.  We are both hopeful that this piece will help increase awareness for all lung cancer patients.  Thank you to the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) for sponsoring this billboard campaign!

The ALCF’s billboard – I can’t believe we are up there!

That was b his hope as well as V his fight for all Cancer diagnoses. . You have beat the odds!

Your personal story, the billboard, the message — all I can say is WOW and thanks soooo much for carrying on the fight for the many patients, families and caregivers who have looked lung cancer in the face.
