Gail's ROS1 Fundraiser

November 2019 update - After 22 months on the miracle drug, Xalkori, my cancer is considered stable, which is fantastic news by healthcare standards. With continual research, this cancer will become manageable in the lives of many. My story begins in January 2018, I was diagnosed with ROS1 lung cancer. Me-Lung cancer!!?? Unbelievable to me was that I was a non-smoker with lung cancer. ROS1 mutations affect only 1-2% of lung cancer patients as well as other types of cancers. I am fortunate enough to be treated with a groundbreaking targeted therapy drug. This rare cancer is on the brink of being treated as a manageable disease rather than a terminal one. The ROS1ders, a patient/caregiver group dedicated to the research and manageability of this disease is fundraising for our cause. I am a part of this group consisting of just over 500 members worldwide! We are actually directly helping in the research of how this cancer works and how to combat it. We are sponsored by GO2Foundation. With your help and donations, we will make a difference in managing this disease. Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please visit the ROS1cancer.org website for more information on ROS1. This cause is very dear to me, and we appreciate all the support we can get! Together we can make a difference! Thank you so very much!! - Gail & Brian
