Gwen Takes the Stage

About a month after Gwen’s big, local ABC11 TV appearance, she had the opportunity to speak at the Lung Cancer Initiative’s Annual Meeting as their “Survivor Speaker.”

She’s on the program cover!

I felt I was tricked into attending an ANNUAL MEETING, but we got to hear a bunch of cool updates about what projects local doctors and grad students are using their grant monies to fund. It is exciting to think about the advancements that may be coming in the future! The dinner was delicious, and Gwen did a great job sharing her story. The event took place on our Mom’s birthday, so it was nice we didn’t have to make her dinner. We are super thankful for all that these doctors, researchers, and volunteers are doing for lung cancer survivors and lung cancer research.

She has recently been scanned and had a trip to Boston – all news was that she is “stable.” She continues to have minuscule spots in her lungs and a spot on her femur.

Just yesterday, she ran 4 miles outside – no small feat as the pollen has started here in NC! We are now off school for at least 2 weeks whilst we practice the art of social distancing. Please keep your immuno-compromised and elderly friends, family, and neighbors in your thoughts and prayers! Stay safe everyone!
