Third grader Alexandra Miskie, 8, walks with her grandmother, Sandra Miskie, a 20-year cancer survivor, May 3, during an American Cancer Society Relay Recess at Stetson Elementary School. Alexandria Miskie’s paternal grandmother died of breast and lung cancer. Sandra Miskie had also been diagnosed with cancer, and given a two-week life expectancy. “If I didn’t fight 20 years ago,” she said, walking with her family during the relay, “I wouldn’t have been here to see my grandchildren.”
I pledge my support to bring SMAC! to life for my Mom, Leslie Lehrman. Seven year survivor of lung cancer. Nope, you do not have to smoke to get lung cancer. ANYONE can get it.
