In December of 2007, I was diagnosed with lung cancer. Following surgery to remove my entire left lung, I was treated with chemotherapy and radiation @ Brigham and Women's Hospital. Following that I was also diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy. Doctors are now monitoring a spot on my right lung. Because of the excellent care I have received, I am able to celebrate my 70th birthday in April of this year. In lieu of cards or flowers for my birthday, please consider making a donation in any amount to Brigham's Lung Center, so that others diagnosed with cancer can have a brighter future.
