Dear Friends and Family,
The ROS1ders set a research fundraising goal for this month in honor of Lung Cancer Awareness month. I hope you can help us reach it. $10.00 is what I’m asking you to contribute. Four years ago my cough-cough led to a Stage IV lung cancer diagnosis (Jan. 2016). You know my story. Since then I’ve been on two targeted therapy drugs for ROS1 cancer. Neither FDA approved when I started them. Currently I am in a clinical trial. With each new drug the research scientists are learning more and more about the response to and of the ROS1 fusion. The ROS1ders are donating tumor tissue and more to this research. For me, there is possibly one more drug in trial when ROS1 finds a work-around to my current drug. For others there isn’t yet another drug.
For you scientists in my “family”, here’s some information on the research. ROS1 PDX Study
Here’s what I’m asking of you – $10.00 If every one of my blog readers and facebook friends and family gave $10. to this research I’d have made a great contribution. I ask this as much for the young moms and dads in our ROS1der group as for myself. Sure, I’d love to stay around to watch the grandkids grow and to get to grow old with Dan is a dream I once took for granted. But there are young people in our group who need to live long enough to see this cancer treated as a managed chronic illness so they can just experience life.
So, $10.00. Please. Thank you. Thank you for this and all your love, support, well wishes and prayers. Thank you for reading this and every post. Here’s the link to my fundraising page. Corinne’s ROS1 page
