In this episode Mike talks with his long-time friend and dedicated Lung Cancer Advocate, Deb Violette.

In 1998 Deb’s world was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with stage III-A lung cancer and was given a 10% chance of living 2 years. As she thought about her grim prognosis one evening, it suddenly dawned on her that she should be focusing on the 10% chance of survivorship. Since then Deb has gone on to share hope and inspiration to countless others, especially in her home state of Maine where she is the Founder and President of Free ME from Lung Cancer http://www.freemefromlungcancer.org/

She is a regular participant in the programs of national cancer research organizations including the AACR, ASCO, and is a Member of the International Association of the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) and the Maine Cancer Consortium. Deb is an inspiration to everyone who is aspiring to be a Powerful Patient.
