Kristen Carlton is Changing the Face of Lung Cancer

I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Lung Cancer in July 2013. I had no symptoms, but my tumor showed up on a CT done for kidney stones. On Aug 14, 2013, I had my tumor and left lower lobe removed. Fortunately, my cancer was caught early and had not spread to my lymph nodes. Now 11-weeks post surgery, I am training to run my third half-marathon. I am determined to finish. I am also determined to help raise awareness for this horrible disease.
