Poet E. E. Cummings is famous for a poem which begins with the beautiful line ~ "i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)".
Since November 2018, we have been carrying our beloved mama, baka, and wife 𝗜𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗮'𝘀 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁𝘀. That is when she was shockingly diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer, even though she is a never-smoker who was only 61 at the time of diagnosis and had no symptoms or family history of cancer. As we belatedly learned, "Anyone with lungs can get lung cancer" (no matter the gender, age, or smoking status).
We formed 𝗧𝗘𝗔𝗠 𝗜𝗩𝗜𝗖𝗔 𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗢𝗡𝗚 to help raise money for absolutely crucial lung cancer research that will hopefully help Ivica, and others, as she continues along this lung cancer journey. The money raised will not only finance research projects via the 𝗚𝗢𝟮 𝗙𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗟𝘂𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗿, but will also fund many of GO2's vital programs and services, all of which we have greatly benefited from.
