LCA Remembers Kathryn Joosten

Sunday, June 3, 2012: Lung Cancer Alliance President and CEO Laurie Fenton Ambrose issued the following statement today: 

Lung Cancer Alliance extends condolences and deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Kathryn Joosten:  talented actress, dedicated advocate and defender of all those who have been touched by this disease. 

She used her talents, even to the last days of her life, to wage a heroic battle against the stigma and blame that have so unfairly surrounded this disease and led to such indifference about the leading cause of cancer deaths. 

 We are grateful to her for all she has done. She brought great joy to her many, many fans, and compassion to those who also suffer from this disease.  

The message is clear: no one deserves to die of lung cancer.
