I would like to share with all of you an article on one of my patients that was featured in the November 2012 issue of Ladies Home Journal.  

I think her story will resonate with all of you. My patient, Wesley Fay, epitomizes the well-informed, passionate, caring type of person that I encounter so often on GRACE. Though she is a private person, she was willing to share her story in hopes of inspiring others and raising awareness about lung cancer. I’d also like to express my thanks to the team at Ladies Home Journal. Everyone we encountered was interested in helping us tell Wesley’s story and showed such compassion and sensitivity. Wesley’s story has definitely touched a lot of people and I can’t think of a group who would appreciate her insights more than the GRACE community.

You can find the full article at http://lhj.com/health/conditions/cancer/what-its-like-having-lung-cancer/.
