Screening Success Story

In June 2019, Edward Zielinski was diagnosed with Stage 2b lung cancer. "There is no word in the English language to express how grateful I am that I went for that scan -- because I'm still here. I'm alive to see another day with my wife and daughter." Edward was saved by the scan and routinely gets screened to make sure he stays cancer-free.
