Welcome to the Smith Family Fundraising Page
Support the fight to beat lung cancer!
I am fundraising for the 11th Annual A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities because of my MOM! Many of you know that my mom has been fighting stage 4 lung cancer as a non smoker for 4.5 years now. We are determined to fight this disease and pray for more advancements in the treatment of lung cancer so that we have more time with her. But prayers aren't enought because lung cancer is so terribly underfunded. See these staggering facts:
- 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 Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities began 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 then 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.
