Lung cancer resource guide by survivors and doctors that covers symptoms, treatment, assistance and support.
31 yr old Hodgkins Survivor wishes to offer words of hope and healing to anyone struggling through the disease or watching a loved one face their difficult journey.

Please feel free to write!
Nordie's at Noon shares the personal stories of four young professional women diagnosed with breast cancer at age 30 or younger. Once a month, they met at Nordstrom's Cafe for lunch. It was their special place to laugh, cry, support and educate each other - and celebrate the journey of life after a cancer diagnosis.
Their diagnoses came at very different phases of their young lives. Patti was 24, single, and forging her way in the corporate world. Jana was planning her wedding at age 27, and courageously walked down the aisle wearing a wig and breast prothesis. Jennifer, also 27, was five months pregnant when she was diagnosed, and endured surgery and chemotherapy during the pregnancy. Kim found her lump at age 30 while planning her son's second birthday party, and faced the issues of raising a toddler while she underwent treatment.
Nordie's at Noon will serve as a source of humor, strength, inspiration and education. It is the author's hope that this book will encourage women to be proactive with their health - and realize that no one is "too young" for breast cancer.
