Kelly Andrews-Klagmann lost her courageous battle with non-small cell lung cancer at the tragically young age of 27. Kelly’s diagnosis occurred after a week of hospitalization and months of misdiagnosed bronchitis and pneumonia. Previous signs included being winded on a bike and a diagnosis of allergies after wheezing during yard work. She did not smoke. She ate well. She exercised often.
Six months after her diagnosis, and just hours after exchanging marriage vows with her soul mate, Collin Klagmann, Kelly was taken by lung cancer.
It is for people like Kelly that A Breath of Hope raises awareness and revenue to fight lung cancer and to change the stigmas that keep it underfunded and misunderstood.
