Suzie Friedman knew just where to turn once she decided to participate in a lung cancer screening program after being a former smoker for more than 40 years. The breast cancer survivor had lost her husband to mesothelioma but she credits her time with him to Shirish Gadgeel, M.D., leader, Thoracic Oncology Multidisciplinary Team at Karmanos. When she heard about Karmanos' Lung Cancer Screening Program she contacted Dr. Gadgeel. WDIV Local 4 captured Suzie's heartfelt story.
Contributions from the Gianni Ferrarotti Lung Cancer Foundation help offset the cost of the lung cancer screening to help detect lung cancer early for those at high risk of the disease.
