In 2011, my dad Ed lost his battle with Lung Cancer. As a non-smoker, his diagnosis was an absolute shock to all of us. We all wondered how a perfectly healthy person could be diagnosed with a disease often connected to heavy smokers. Team Buccieri formed in 2016 to join forces and help educate people about the dangers and misconceptions associated with Lung Cancer.
My dad was the best person I ever knew. He was hard working, upbeat, and humourous - and remained that way through his entire treatment. He was a true hero and will always be remembered as one. This year, I urge our friends and family to come together with Team Buccieri to help spread Lung Cancer awareness.
