Kristina was inspired by her mom's battle with lung cancer to start The Pearl Project with the goal of raising money for lung cancer research and getting rid of the stigma associated with lung cancer. Kristina's work is incredible and her stories about working with her mom, starting at age 14 will inspire you. Her story hits close to home for me, I lost my mom to lung cancer and my mother in law is a lung cancer survivor.
