Welcome to Karen Russell's Page

Karen Russell

Thank you for visiting. I was diagnosed with lung cancer in December 2013. It was shocking as I was a nonsmoker with no symptoms. Who knew nonsmokers could get this terrible disease?? (It has taken me a year to fully get my head around this.) I had my upper right lobe removed in January 2014. It was a difficult surgery, but GOD blessed me with a wonderful surgeon and a husband who was a complete rock star. The pathology report showed the tumor was an Adenocarcinoma staged at 1A. Today I am cancer free, but continue to monitor my situation with regular CT scans.

I want others to know that nonsmokers can and do get this disease.

Together, we can make a difference. Can't wait to meet other survivors to encourage and hug you!! :-)

Thank you.

Love, Karen
