On Today’s Talk with Erika… It is officially National Cancer Survivor Month, also known as JUNE, and today’s guest is very special. Bonnie Addario, is Co-Founder, Board Chair and patient advocate of the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. Bonnie was at the top of her game in 2004, leading one of the largest privately held oil companies in the United States, when she received the gut-wrenching diagnosis of stage 3B lung cancer.
Bonnie happened to be the first woman to be elected to the California Independent Oil Marketers Association. So, as a woman seemingly in control of so many aspects of her life, she now had to take cancer by the horns. She has now empowered thousands of patients and given them a voice. Recognizing the need for education, empowerment, advocacy, and research to help patients and families, Bonnie and her family founded the “Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation” (ALCF) in 2006. In 2019, ALCF and the Lung Cancer Alliance merged, forming GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. In 2020, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from CURE Magazine. And she’s now author of The Living Room: A Lung Cancer Community of Courage.
