Lastly, one of our biggest fans, Jared’s little sister (Jillian Miller) recently passed away from her battle with lung cancer. She would listen to this show and she thought we were so funny! Just when I thought our community couldn’t get any better, there were a few people who were helping support Jared during this time. Unbelievable community during an unbelievable time!
Lung Cancer is a relentless, devastating and deadly disease. During her battle, she was part of a few clinical trials so she could help others dealing with this and other rare cancers. We can help continue this research by donating to the Lung Cancer Center of Excellence at Moffitt Cancer Center.https://www.moffitt.org/research–clinical-trials/research-disciplines/centers-of-excellence/Lung-Cancer-Center-of-Excellence-LCCoE
