Merita Carroll is Changing the Face of Lung Cancer

I was diagnosed with stage 4 non-small cell adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer March 6, 2015. I am also a non-smoker. I was diagnosed at the age of 49. I\’m a Registered Nurse and had no medical history until my diagnosis. Because of being a non-smoker and with no medical history I was diagnosed late at stage 4. I am also on a mission to get the information out that anyone even non-smokers can get lung cancer. I have a Team of over 700 supporters called Team Merita Carroll. My husband and I also have a Facebook page that we run with over 250 patients and caregivers of lung cancer patients with the specific alk genetic mutation. I have a new grand baby and I\’m fighting this cancer hard every day!
