Kim Wieneke is Changing the Face of Lung Cancer

Hello.  I’m Kim.  Kim Wieneke, living in Portland, Oregon.  I’ve got lung cancer and I’m not very happy about it.  It pretty much sucks.

At age 34, I was diagnosed with Stage 3b lung cancer on May 11, 2011.  On September 14, 2011 I learned that my cancer spread.  It is now considered incurable.

Each day, I get better at “living with a terminal illness”.  I don’t have it mastered; I certainly don’t I have all the right answers.  What I do have and openly share, in my writing, are my experiences and how they impact me.

This blog is my story for friends, family, and fellow travelers.
