Online: Cancer Survivor Bonnie J Addario

Thursday, June 17 - 7:00 PM

About the Zoom Event
Bonnie J. Addario was diagnosed with stage 3B lung cancer at age 55, when she was at the top of her game and leading one of the largest privately held oil companies in the United States. In her corporate arena, she was the first woman to be elected to the California Independent Oil Marketers Association.

Nearly 150,000 Americans are lost to lung cancer every year, amounting to around 400 every single day. It accounts for one-third of all cancer diagnoses, the most deaths of any cancer, and as many losses as the next three most deadly cancers (breast, prostate, and colon) combined.

Now a 17-year survivor of lung cancer, Bonnie is co-founder, board chair, and patient advocate of the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer, the largest lung cancer organization in the United States. Since receiving her stage 3B lung cancer diagnosis, she has empowered patients and given them a voice. Bonnie acts as an adviser to industry leaders, clinicians, and policymakers and is a member of the Personalized Medicine Coalition board. In 2020, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from CURE Magazine.

A determined activist on behalf of patients suffering from the disease, Bonnie has built an extraordinary global network of fellow activists, patients, doctors, oncologists, researchers, and caregivers. In her new book, The Living Room: A Lung Cancer Community of Courage, Bonnie profiles twenty people battling advanced lung cancer and the ways they’ve found to thrive, not just survive. The goal of Bonnie’s efforts is to break down the barriers and stigmas associated with lung cancer and demonstrate how the new wave of treatment options are moving to make it a manageable disease.
