2019 Advocate Award Winner: Survivor of the Year - Jon Gorman

Jon Gorman became involved with Lung Cancer Initiative within months of his initial diagnosis. Ever since then, Jon has dedicated his time to sharing his story with others.

Whether it's meeting survivors or those newly diagnosed with lung cancer for lunch around town, sharing his story through community projects, or leading fundraising teams at our LUNGe Forward events, Jon is a powerful advocate for lung cancer awareness.

Jon continues to find new ways to show his commitment to LCI's mission and was an active member of our organization's 2019 Strategic Planning Committee. 

We are grateful to Jon for the time that he gives back to the lung cancer community as an inspirational advocate that has used his difficult experience to spark hope in the lives of others. Jon was one of five advocates honored at the 2020 Let's Create Hope: Annual Update & Awards Celebration held on Sunday, February 23.
