My Story: Stephanie Haney

Welcome to "My Story," a new Engaging Innovation series that provides a platform for a diverse group of individuals to share how cancer has altered their lives. Our hope is for each person’s unique perspective to shed light on the many ways cancer impacts an individual, and how that in turn drives change. We'll show how it has inspired, and in some cases led to innovation, to better help those who find themselves affected by this terrible disease.


In the first of this series, we spoke with Stephanie Haney, a Stage IV Lung Cancer patient. At the time of her diagnosis, Stephanie was a young mother of two. 

That was my biggest fear, is my kids are two and four, they're not even going to remember me.

Stephanie and her family were shocked by her diagnosis. She had no risk factors or family history. With the help of newly available treatments, such as breakthrough therapies, she has defied the odds and watched her daughters grow from little girls into young women and is now a powerful advocate for research and science.
