<-- This is my mom waiting for chemo. Isn't she precious?!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit Team Little Mommies' page! I can't tell you how much it means to me that you are here ... reading our story.

There is something bittersweet about a cancer diagnosis. Many people don't have an opportunity to have meaningful, important conversations about life and death with loved ones. A chance to find peace and acceptance. A chance to share all of your hopes and dreams and to learn theirs. Or the chance to just love on them with the reality that every day is a gift. Because it is. For all of us.

When my mom, Janet Zeller, a non-smoker, was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in June 2011, I was devastated. But through excellent oncology care, "maintenance" chemo every three weeks, and mom's live-life-well attitude, she is still keeping the cancer in check. When I call my mom each day, I am reminded of her joy for life, her resilience, her love for family and friends. She's currently beating her odds (roughly 15% survival rate for stage IV over 5 years), and for this I am beyond grateful.

My mom doesn't deserve to die from lung cancer - no one does. With the help of the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, I want to spread the word against the stigma about lung cancer (nearly 80% of new lung cancer cases are former and never smokers), help transform lung cancer into a chronically managed disease and ultimately to find a cure.

Please join me in the fight against lung cancer. Donate online to my team or join my team for the 5K walk/run on March 7 in Gainesville, FL.

All my love and support,

Ginny
