Board of Directors
Founder/President – Lung Cancer Foundation of America
A successful management consultant who traveled the world working with Fortune 500 companies, their CEO’s and senior teams, helping them improve their bottom line profits, Kim entered the world of lung cancer when Roy, her 45 year old husband, was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer in 1997. They spent the next two years searching for hope. Roy underwent five different lung cancer research clinical trials from chemotherapy to immunotherapy to anti-angiogenisis therapies. Several years after Roy’s passing, Kim entered the world of lung cancer advocacy and became a Lung SPORE (Specialized Program of Research Excellence) Patient Advocate at UCLA, where she met David and Lori. Kim feels she is combining her skills as a successful consultant with those as caregiver to her husband and applying those skills to the world of lung cancer advocacy. Her hope is to get lung cancer research the attention and funding it deserves based on the significance of its impact on public health. Kim lives in Los Angeles.
