Jason Day is a professional golfer, member of the PGA Tour and a former No. 1 golfer in the world. Jason’s mom, Dening, sacrificed to help her son achieve his dreams, never giving up. So, when Dening was diagnosed with Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer, it was so devastating that Jason almost quit golfing – his passion since childhood. But, like his mom who did not give up on her son, Day followed her example, making sure she received a full lung cancer diagnosis, complete with biomarker and mutation testing to help direct her treatment. Dening is now living with lung cancer.

Jason is now part of an initiative launching called the Test It Back campaign, encouraging patients newly diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer to ensure they receive a full diagnosis, inclusive of biomarker testing.

Our last guest is Dr. Lisa McAdams, Acting Regional Administrator for the Southwest Regional Office of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Since May, millions of people have received and are successfully using their new Medicare card. In October 2018, CMS will be mailing new cards to people with Medicare in Texas and New Mexico. Everyone with Medicare in these states should get their new Medicare cards by the end of October. Each new card will have a unique new Medicare number—instead of a Social Security number. Removing Social Security numbers will help prevent Medicare fraud. While there’s a new card and number, Medicare benefits remain the same. Receiving new cards: You don’t have to do anything to get your new Medicare card, they will be arriving automatically by mail. Find out when your card is coming: Sign up online at Medicare.gov/newcard to get emails that tell you when cards are being mailed to your area. It takes about a month for everyone in your mailing area to receive their cards.
