Imagine running 101 marathons. Now imagine doing that with lung cancer. That’s exactly what Marina Jones, a 66-year old lung cancer survivor did recently. Marina was selected to be one of only twenty Medtronic Global Champions™ running in the 2018 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon.

Now more than ever, it’s important to talk with women about lung cancer. According to a recent Bayesian analysis of 52 countries worldwide, the global age-standardized lung cancer mortality rate among women is projected to increase by 43% from the year 2015 to the year 2030, surpassing the mortality rate of breast cancer in many high-income countries. It’s Lung Cancer Awareness month. Let’s make it a priority to talk with women about their lung health and change this alarming trend.
