A new kind of Summit

photo-57This weekend I’m celebrating life with almost a hundred lung cancer survivors at the LUNGevity Hope Summit, in Washington DC.

Two quick highlights:

  1.  I feel like I’ve met someone famous!  I connected with fellow blogger, Jessica Rice.  Another 30-something who’s life has been flopped upside-down from lung cancer.
  2. I had lunch next to a woman who is a 13-year survivor. That’s right- 13!  Makes that number look not-so-unlucky!

    Hi Kim, It was so great to meet you at hope summit, my fellow Oregonian. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time. I find it hard to leave the support of that community but I do feel a little renewed. Hopefully we can get together when I come up your way. Hugs, Anne
