Christina is in her early thirties, healthy, never a smoker and a new Mom...and was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer in February 2016.
There are a lot of people just like her — young, healthy and a non-smokers. Unfortunately, 1 in 15 people will get lung cancer in their lifetime, and just like anything else, anyone with lungs can get lung cancer.
Christina was given 6 months to live because there aren't a lot of options for people at this point. It is such a stigmatized cancer that research into it isn't given the attention it deserves. Even though lung cancer kills more people than the other top three cancers combined (breast, prostate and colorectal), it received only 5% of the government's funding for cancer in 2015 — the least amount per life lost of any other cancer.
The good news? Christina is doing AMAZING!!! And because of brilliant research in the past 5 years, there are now options that can keep her going for a few years and they are researching options past that.
And so...SBL is hosting it's 2nd Annual big ol' Summer BBQ with proceeds going to the Lung Cancer CU Foundation!
