I’m a 41 year old mother and wife. I have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), Adenocarcinoma. My kids are 8 and 11. I’ve never smoked or lived or worked near smokers. In fact, I’m something of a health nut and I was seemingly very fit (I taught indoor cycle & other fitness classes up until I got too sick in mid-December 2013). I have degrees from UC Berkeley and UCLA that I don’t use for any practical purposes; mostly I’m a stay-at-home mom who enjoys fitness, photography and other creative pursuits, good books and bad TV.
