Beth Galvin - April 2016
Katherine DeJoseph was shocked when she learned of her stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis. However, she credits the clinic she attends as providing her a great support system. She met a survivor halfway through treatment who really helped her along and she made the decision to provide that support to others going through the experience.
DeJoseph introduces herself to newly diagnosed patients with the same or similar diagnoses, helps them understand what the treatments will look and feel like, and even shows up to their treatments to keep them company. She serves as a reminder that people can and do beat lung cancer.
DeJoseph is happy to help others, stating "I'm not grateful I got cancer by any stretch, but I am thankful for the change, because..I'm happy to be doing this."
