I was diagnosed early with both lung cancer and COPD. I want others to be just as lucky.
In the past 15 years, I have survived a terminal stomach cancer diagnosis at age 52 and both lung cancer and COPD at age 57. I also have coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, IBS, tinnitus with hearing loss, 2 rebuilt shoulders, 8 broken bones, and a torn meniscus.
“Phil Huston is a friend, a colleague, and someone I admire tremendously. Most of us take every new breath for granted, but Phil—and others coping with COPD and lung cancer—do not. He is living proof that with proper screening, detection, and treatment, people with chronic lung diseases live long, satisfying lives. All of us need to get that message out to our friends, family, and colleagues. The Clear Lungs Adventure is a perfect vehicle to do that. It is a breath of fresh air and a call to action.”
