Stepping into the Light
Submitted by James Fiorentini. Originally written for the 2018 Shine a Light Boston Event. Good evening. I am here tonight to thank the community that has taken such good care of me since I was first diagnosed over six years ago. Like most people who have survived lung cancer for more than a year or two, I was diagnosed by accident. Seven years ago, I was rushed to a local hospital and diagnosed with pneumonia. They hospitalized me for several days, took X-Rays and CT scans.
