LCFA is saddened by the loss of Elizabeth Moir, who passed away on Friday, August 27, 2021 at the age of 32. A mother of 2 beautiful girls under the age of 5, a wife, a daughter, a friend, Elizabeth simply did not accept her diagnosis 3 years ago. Instead, she decided to use her talents and skills to communicate the importance of funding lung cancer research. LCFA was fortunate to have known such a beautiful, articulate, and compassionate advocate.
When she shared her story with LCFA in September 2019, she was a 29-year-old, healthy and athletic mother, who had never smoked. In the months after her episode of coughing up blood and lung cancer diagnosis, Elizabeth has learned more about lung cancer than she ever expected to and is disheartened by the tremendous funding gap. Her goal was to change that in whatever way she was able, beginning with advocacy.
