Madi's Fundraising Page:)
Hey there! Welcome to Team Kurvers & my personal fundraising page! I am excited to have the opportunity to support an organization in the fight against this terrible disease.
What many don't know is that lung cancer is the deadliest cancer, claiming more lives than breast, colon and prostate cancer COMBINED. Yet, it is still dramatically underfunded.
My dad has never been a smoker and he was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer this winter. This was the hardest news that I've ever recieved. However, we have been blessed with amazing doctors, tons of support from family, friends and the hockey community, and a much less invasive treatment than chemo.
I will be running the 5K(most know that I have never been a runner, so this is big :) ) My dad will be running the 10k! We hope you consider donating to our team or even joining to walk or run!
Heres some more information about the event:
Support the fight to beat lung cancer!
I am fundraising for the 13th 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.
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.
