Thank you for visiting my Fundraising page! I am pushing forward in my efforts to help support my sister and her team of ALKies and their efforts to raise money for RESEARCH. As most of you know, Christina discovered a swollen, hard lymph node in her neck in March 2019. On April 1st 2019 she had a biopsy and soon after learned that she had Stage IV Metastatic Lung Cancer. This came as a HUGE shock to our entire family as Christina was very health conscious, not a smoker and had no symptoms to indicate that her lungs were compromised. What we have learned through this journey is that this type of cancer is caused by a rare gene translocation or rearrangement. If you have lungs you can have lung cancer. She is currently having a great response from her Targeted Therapy, which targets and blocks the gene causing the cancer. The Research and funding is NEEDED to develop new and improved targeted therapy and to develop medication to prevent resistance that seems to develop over time to keep these targeted therapies working. Federal funding for Lung Cancer is far less than Breast, Colon, and Prostate with far more cancer deaths per year. I welcome any and all ideas for fundraising efforts from any individual or small business ideas. Thank you all friends and family!!
