Announcing The ROS1ders newsletter “ROS1derings”

We’ve created a newsletter!

This newsletter will become a quarterly communication tool for The ROS1ders. In this issue, Marisa Wittebort shares tips for contributing to the ROS1 tissue study, Bärbel Söhlke​ writes about ROS1 activities in Europe, Jeff Wynne details what his data base shows about ROS1 members, and Lisa Goldman offers a fundraising update. We’ve also included a letter you can give to your doctor if you’re interested in participating in the ROS1 Cancer Model Project. Thanks to our authors and to editors Joyce Hoelting and Jeff Wynne for making this happen.

We’re anxious to hear what you think! Please tell us in the comments what you’d like to read about in our next newsletter.

I was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer in May 2011. The cancer became metastatic in October 2011. No, I never smoked anything (except a salmon). I've had no evidence of disease since January 2013 thanks to precision medicine, clinical trials, and other patients. ANYONE can get lung cancer. Using my engineering degrees (MIT SBME 1978, Caltech Aeronautics MS 1984 and ENGR 1986), I enjoyed a 20-year career in aerospace systems engineering as a technical translator of sorts: I researched a scientific or engineering subject and helped others understand how this new gizmo could benefit them. In the time I have left, I want to use my skills to help others who have lung cancer, and increase the visibility and knowledge of lung cancer among those who don't. I also study brain research, enjoy traveling, write science fiction, and geek out about all sorts of science stuff.
