In October of 2007,  with no risk factors, Stephanie had her world turned upside down with her diagnosis.  With a second opinion from Dr. Mehra and a clinical trial – Stephanie was able to stabilize her tumors after seven months of the drug treatment. “It is worth it to me to receive the most progressive treatments possible to sustain my quality of life and my time with my children and in pursuit of other interests, including advocating for lung cancer awareness and funding. Thanks to the incredible team at Fox Chase, I am an active participant in my life, and don’t intend to let lung cancer get in the way of that.”
