Support the fight to beat lung cancer!
I am fundraising for the 12th Annual A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities because:
- Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer, claiming more lives than breast, colon and prostate cancers COMBINED.
- More than 160,000 Americans will die of lung cancer this year. Half are nonsmokers when diagnosed; and
- Lung cancer research remains dramatically underfunded.
Two and a half years ago, I watched my vibrant little sister live with and die from this disease. She left behind hundreds of people who love her and miss her. She fought a good fight and we need to continue to fight so no one need ever fight again or feel the loss of a loved one because lung cancer entered their lives.
A year ago on August 10th, a classmate of mine died from lung cancer after an almost two year fight.
I continue their fight.
The A Breath of Hope Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk originated in 2007 after a group of lung cancer patients, their family members and their nurse experienced the lack of awareness, resources and support for this devastating disease. They realized that without action, the 15% survival rate would not improve.
A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) in 2008 to fight lung cancer through awareness, patient and family support and innovative lung cancer research.
Please consider a donation to support my efforts to beat this unfair and misunderstood disease.
