Lisa Goldman is Changing the Face of Lung Cancer

’Im a 41 year old mother and wife. I have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), Adenocarcinoma. My kids are 8 and 11. I’ve never smoked or lived or worked near smokers. In fact, I’m something of a health nut and I was seemingly very fit (I taught indoor cycle & other fitness classes up until I got too sick in mid-December 2013). I have degrees from UC Berkeley and UCLA that I don’t use for any practical purposes; mostly I’m a stay-at-home mom who enjoys fitness, photography and other creative pursuits, good books and bad TV.

Blogging for #LCAM15

In honor of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a group of lung cancer bloggers will be interviewing people in the lung cancer community and profiling a patient, caregiver, advocate or health care provider each day in November. I am excited to get to know more people who are impacted by this disease, and I hope you will join us on this ride.

All profiles can be found the day after posting on the #LCSM Chat blog at A list of links to all the profiles on the original bloggers’ pages can be found at on the #LCSM Chat site on the Profiles in Lung Cancer page.
