The Power of Knowledge


Today I’m partnering with City of Hope OC to talk about a topic that most people may not want to talk about.

We sometimes get so busy that if we don’t see it or hear it then we don’t have to think about it. But did you know lung cancer is one of the most common types of cancer worldwide? And most people don’t find out about it until it’s already been advanced. 

I personally have had a very close family friend pass away from lung cancer who had a history of smoking cigarettes very often. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much technology or treatment on it back then. Growing up, seeing that, and learning about lung cancer as a kid scared me to never want to try cigarettes. It hit me that close to home. 

To help raise lung cancer awareness for November, I got the opportunity to interview one of City of Hope’s patient Dori Neuman to share her experience to help others gain more knowledge on this important topic. I wanted to find out more about her personal journey on how she found out she was diagnosed with lung cancer, how she coped with the diagnosis, what treatments she sought out, and what she’s learned from all these experiences. Please see the attached images below to read what she shared with me. 

Dori was actually initially diagnosed with malignant melanoma before lung cancer and shares her incredible journey of having hope even in the toughest times and how City of Hope played an important part of her treatment. Below are are 5 things Dori learned after being diagnosed with malignant cancer.

Have you heard of lung cancer before? Do you know anyone who may find this information helpful to share with? 

Go to City of Hope OC to learn tips on lung cancer prevention and lung cancer screening and early detection as well the variety of treatment options available. I want to give a special THANK YOU to Dori Neuman for her time and openness to share her lung cancer story. This isn’t an easy topic to discuss but, as Dori mentioned about City of Hope’s motto: “The Power of Knowledge Saves Lives.” The more we know about lung cancer - the more we share and talk about learn cancer - the more ways we can work on finding solutions to save lives. 

As always, thanks for reading and sending you air hugs!
