In loving memory of Dianne Levorson
I am honored to participate in the Breath of Hope Lung Run for my ninth year in a row. I look forward to this event every year not only as a way to remember my beautiful mother, but as a time to come together in community with a common goal: ending the suffering caused by lung cancer.
Each year I marvel at the growth of the event and the foundation. They truly understand not only the immense pain and fear a lung cancer diagnosis causes, but also the community it takes to get through it, to survive it, and to mourn it. Most of all, they understand the community it will take to end lung cancer for good. I feel proud to support this foundation in memory of my mother, a woman who fought a losing battle with all of her strength. A woman of kindness, compassion, selflessness, beauty and love which remain as an example for me to live my life every day to its fullest, with the hope of making her proud. Most of all, a woman who was taken from us far too soon and far too young. A woman I miss every single day.
Please consider donating to this fundraiser. Together we can end the fear caused by a lung cancer diagnosis. Together we can fight to end the deadliest cancer and bring hope to hundreds of thousands of people.
Support the fight to beat lung cancer!
I am fundraising for the 10th Anniversary A Breath of Hope Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk 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.
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.
