Getting Out of the Rough with Jason Day
Pro golfer and PGA Champion Jason Day joins AstraZeneca to launch the Getting Out of the Rough campaign, to educate lung cancer patients and their caregivers about biomarker testing and the importance of completing a lung cancer diagnosis at any stage.
The Getting Out of the Rough campaign features a six-episode video series, where Jason is joined by friends from the worlds of medicine and entertainment to discuss and learn about adapting after you or someone you love has been diagnosed with lung cancer.
Jason’s mother, Dening, was diagnosed with Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), in 2017. Jason immediately stepped into the roles of caregiver and advocate to ensure that she received the best care possible—which for Dening included access to comprehensive biomarker testing. Although Dening passed away in March 2022, she was able to spend extended time with her family— extra time that Jason’s wife Ellie refers to as a “silver lining.” This was due in part to the targeted treatment options that she was only able to receive as a result of biomarker testing.
