Dana Lung cancer patient

Dana was being examined for back pain and a CT scan showed she had a tumor in her lung. “They sent me immediately to The Nebraska Medical Center. Fortunately for me, my cancer was discovered at an early stage,” Dana said. Thoracic surgeon Dr. Rudy Lackner removed the tumor in her left lung. “It turned out to be a great day for me when Dr. Lackner came in and said, ‘We got it and your prognosis is very good.’”

Dana and her family live in Omaha.
