Lung Cancer

Sometimes I think that my timing was just incredible. If I had been diagnosed with cancer a few years earlier, my prognosis would have looked much different than it does today—especially if I had not gone to Fox Chase!

    The doctor was entirely focused on his computer, never providing eye contact. Because if his mask, low, deep voice, and no eye contact I had difficulty hearing him.
