148. Terri Conneran (Lung Cancer Survivor and Founder of KRAS Kickers)

On today’s episode, I am speaking with Terri Conneran. Terri was diagnosed with stage 3 non small cell lung cancer in 2017 and has had multiple recurrence since then. Several years after her diagnosis, she found out that her cancer expressed the KRAS biomarker (KRAS mutation) and she went looking for a group or community of other people who also had the KRAS mutation but she didn’t find any — and so, she created KRAS Kickers to bring them together. What started initially as a Facebook group is now a global non profit. Their mission is simple: KRAS Knowledge + Research + Advocacy = Survivorship. The goal is to connect people to current research, resources & a community in order to Kick Cancer’s KRAS! Today, Terri shares her story, talks about cancer biomarkers in general and focuses a lot on patient advocacy and finding your community, which is of utmost importance.
