Jenny White was hit hard with a diagnosis of lung cancer nearly five years ago. She didn’t smoke and wondered how in the world she got lung cancer. After being diagnosed, she quickly learned you don’t have to be a smoker to get the disease. As Jenny puts it, you basically have to have lungs to get lung cancer. According to the American Lung Association, lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States. That’s why Jenny has decided to make it her mission to bring more awareness to the disease and help fund research.
Jenny is encouraging everyone to walk Saturday, May 16th 2015 in the Lung Force Walk in downtown Nashville at Public Square Park. She will be walking with the Saint Thomas Health Lung Gang. Saint Thomas is a proud sponsor of the Lung Force Walk and it’s where Jenny got her treatment. For more information on how to walk or donate.
