Janet Freeman-Daily is a writer, science geek, and lung cancer patient/activist. She received a diagnosis of advanced non-small cell lung cancer in May 2011 which became metastatic despite chemotherapy and radiation.  After learning about genomic testing and precision medicine in online patient communities, she joined a clinical trial for ROS1-positive lung cancer and has had no evidence of disease for over four years.

After twenty years in aerospace systems engineering, Janet is now a full-time patient activist who translates the experience and science of lung cancer treatment and research to improve outcomes and quality of life for lung cancer patients. She co-moderates the Lung Cancer Social Media (#LSCM) Chat on Twitter as @JFreemanDaily, blogs at grayconnections.net, and is one of the leaders of the Global ROS1 Initiative. She has spoken at events and on videos for lung cancer advocacy organizations, hospitals and cancer research centers, oncology conferences, President’s Cancer Panel workshops, and the National Cancer Institute.
