Thank you for visiting! We are celebrating my five years of survivorship with stage IV (metastatic) non-small cell lung cancer (adenocarcinoma). Upon receiving the news that forever changed my life, I told myself that I was under no circumstance losing this battle--that I was not becoming a statistic.
To celebrate this special anniversary, I ask that you donate to a charity that is very dear to me. The Addario Lung Cancer Foundation was founded by a patient who was saved thanks to the fruits of lung cancer research and forward thinking by her doctors. My mother, Mandie Hiznay, who has played such an important role in my healthcare, donates her limited time to advancing this Foundation's mission. I hope you too will further lung cancer research with your donation. As a cancer researcher myself, I know that every dollar is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I look forward to seeing you at the 10-year party!
