Kathy Weber Raises Money For Lung Cancer Awareness
Lung cancer survivor and the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) Foundation Board Member, Kathy Weber, is raising money on behalf of the IASLC Foundation to help further cancer research in the area of early detection. 100% of all donations go directly to the IASLC Foundation. Kathy was fortunate to be diagnosed early with stage Ia adenocarcinoma after having the right upper lobe of her lung removed in 2014. The majority of all lung cancers are diagnosed at stage III or IV.
Kathy is currently “NED” (no evidence of disease). She enjoys an active life with her husband and son on their ranch in Colorado, remains active in her church and works as a neonatal nurse practitioner. Through her role at the IASLC, Kathy is a passionate advocate for improving survivorship and early detection. Follow Kathy on her journey of advocacy at @KWebFight on Twitter and on Facebook at Kathy Weber.
This year Kathy has a stretch goal of $60,000 to fund one full IASLC research fellowship in 2018 focused on early detection. Join Kathy by donating to her special campaign!
In 2016, Kathy raised more that $15,000 for the IASLC Foundation and the Chris Draft Family Foundation. Her efforts earned her a second place finish in the Team Draft Super Bowl Challenge. To learn about Kathy’s Super Bowl Challenge and trip to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, check out the video below.
