Greg

For someone who never touched a cigarette in his life, lung cancer was hard diagnosis to swallow. But Greg stayed focused on getting better and attributes his outcome to the great care he received at St. Luke’s Cancer Center.

Whether we realize it or not, when most of us hear “lung cancer” we immediately think of smoking. Smokers get lung cancer - that’s what most people believe. But that assumption is hardly fair to those non-smokers diagnosed with lung cancer, like Greg, 55, of Bethlehem. Although smoking contributes to 90 percent of lung cancer deaths in men, Greg never smoked a day in his life, and yet, when people found out he had lung cancer, they inevitably asked if he smoked, assuming the answer would be yes.
