Why is she so dedicated to lung cancer advocacy?
She lost her father to complications from treatment of this horrible disease on July 19, 2007. His body couldn't take the second round of chemotherapy. In addition to her father, she lost her grandfather when he was merely 55 to lung. These thoughts still bring tears to her eyes. Finally, she lost her high school love to lung cancer not too long ago. So three of the first men she loved were all taken too early by this disease.
