Sandy Sampson is a non smoker and health conscious individual. Out of the blue, Sandy was diagnosed with lung cancer and woke up minus her right lung after surgery. Lung Cancer kills more Australians than any other cancer and one which affects people of the Pilbara in Western Australia more that any other region in the country.
The people of Karratha in WA's North West supported Sandy's awareness and fund raising campaigns, a community with a heart of gold, helping fight a disease that still baffles scientists.
Sandy now lives in Perth and works part time as a Patient Advocate with the Lung Foundation.
This is Sandy's Story.
