Misty W.'s Story

Arkansas – I lost my mother, Rita, to lung cancer on December 10, 2012 at 3:05 PM. We found out she had lung cancer after a drain tube was put into her lung to drain some fluid off on November 7, 2012. She was a fighter to the very end. She did not want to give up on life but she was just too sick. If I can tell one person with lung cancer if you have any complications go to the doctor immediately and let them check you out. Although I lost her at age 65, she would want the world to know that if you get sick go, to the doctors. Early detection is the key to any illness. If we had only known she was showing other symptoms of lung cancer maybe they could have saved her.
