Janine taught school from 1991 to 2012. She was a special education instructor, advisor and life coach at The Horizons School for young adults in Birmingham, AL for 12 years. Janine also taught as the assistant teacher in Group 5 (4th/5th grade) at the Westland School in Los Angeles, CA. Janine earned a Master of Education and state teacher certification from the University of California in Los Angeles in 1991. Janine’s husband, Don was diagnosed with a pancoast tumor of squamous NSCLC in 2009. After curative doses of concurrent chemo and radiation a tumor on the spine then months later a tumor in the other lung was found but biopsies were undiagnosable and treatments continued until 2012. As of today, Don is NED and living life. Janine began visiting the Grace website in 2009 seeking information about her husband’s disease and hasn’t yet left because she understands the important link the forum makes between information and the individual.

GRACE is celebrating our 10th year!


In recognition, we would like to introduce you to the staff and board members who are so deeply involved in bringing GRACE to life. In this video, we introduce Janine Thompson.
