Patient Fundraiser for the Geoffrey Ogram Memorial Research Fund

Hi, I’m Christine, and I was diagnosed with lung cancer 5 years ago. I’m not a smoker and hardly drink any alcohol. My parents and my relatives all live healthily and actively. I did everything right according to the book, but… You think lung cancer can’t happen to you, little do you know that NO RISK FACTORS ARE REQUIRED. All you need are lungs to get No. 1 cancer killer of both women and men.

The form of my lung cancer is quite rare, called ROS1+ lung cancer. Only 2% of patients are diagnosed with ROS1+ lung cancer, and little is known about this rare form of cancer. New discoveries in lung cancer research result in new treatment for lung cancer patients, including ROS1+ lung cancer patients. For the first time, experts are predicting that lung cancer can be converted into a chronic disease with the near future. RESEARCH MATTERS!

Mr Geoffrey Ogram passed away in 2016 due to lung cancer. His family set up the Geoffrey Ogram Memorial Research Grant at Lung Cancer Canada. In addition, his family will commit $25,000 this year. We want to raise another $25,000 to match it. Every dollar raised will go to support Canadian lung cancer research. We ask you to please help us to reach our goal.

Note: my husband and I donated $5,000 to the Geoffrey Ogram Memorial Research Grant this year.
