I have been busy this month,Lung Cancer Awarness month, working on raising awareness and educating people about the truths of LC and trying, like so many others to eliminate this unfair stigma that is attached to this disease.
Not too long ago I recieved a message on the Make Some Noise Facebook page from a gentleman by the name of Paul Lonardo. Paul wanted to introduce me to a book that he helped to write about a woman by the name of Lauren Terrazzano. I went to Amazon.com and ordered a copy that day.
The book arrived a couple of days later and I began to read. WOW..
Lauren was a writer for Newsweek and just such a remarkable, vibrant woman! Her accomplishments and accolades were incredible! As I read, I found myself feeling so angry and wondering why this talented and much loved woman had to be taken from this world. And at such a young age.
Lauren's story is told by her father, Frank. It is a moving account of an only child, a daughter so cherished and loved, not only by her family but by everyone she came to know. Lauren was a hero for the underprivileged, a champion for children and disabled. People like her do not come along very often and this loss is one that has been felt by so many people.
I am very thankful to Paul for contacting me and to Frank Terrazzano for sharing Lauren's story, not only with me but with the world.
If you are looking for evidence that LUNG CANCER does not discriminate, this book will serve that purpose.
Lung Cancer is the #1 cancer killer, WORLD WIDE. It strikes everyone, young and old, rich and poor, from all walks of life and every ethnicity. It is not a smoker's disease. It is EVERYONE's disease.
