Barbara Murphy was a great runner. She was a talented interior designer and a wonderful wife, mother and friend.
In 2007, Barb was diagnosed with non-smoker's lung cancer out of the blue and fought it valiantly before passing away in December, 2013. She never complained. Instead she focused on doing what she could to create awareness for this disease which afflicts a quarter million Americans a year, including 30,000 people - mostly women - who like, Barb, never smoked.
