Welcome to Erica's Lungs 'N Roses Page!
Welcome to my Personal Lungs 'N Roses Page! From here, you can help me support Winship Cancer Institute and join the Lungs 'N Roses team as a participatant in the Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk.
Winship Cancer Institute holds a special place in my heart. My internist saved my life in September 2015 when she saw a spot on my chest xray during a routine physical; she compared it to the prior year's chest x-ray, and then sent me for a CT scan. The spot was a mass, malignant, and removed, along with half of my left lung just two weeks later. Nine lymph nodes were also removed, and one tested positive for a very rare nonsmokers lung cancer - I had an atypical neuroendocrine carcinoid of the lung. Winship treated me with chemo and since January 2016 I've had 7 clean CT scans! By racetime I will be cancer free for 24 months!! We're so lucky to have Winship in our backyard. For 80 years, Winship has been a national leader in seeking out new ways to defeat cancer and translating that knowledge into outstanding patient care. Today, with over 250 active Phase I, II and III clinical trials, Winship researchers are dedicated to taking new cancer treatments from bench to bedside. With your contribution today, we can make real progress to help save and improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
I’m so excited to be joining other supporters and families in the Atlanta community for the Winship Win the Fight 5K! Will you help me make a difference with a donation of any amount?
