Lynn was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer on July 10, 2019 (also known as the date that turned our families world upside down forever). Shortly after her diagnosis date everything changed in a matter of days and she ended up spending almost everyday in the hospital fighting a tough battle of facing the daily new obstacles this cancer created. After a long and hard fight, Lynn decided to end the treatments that couldn't keep up with the spread of the cancer and the damage it was doing to her body. She chose peace and to be with her loved ones with her remaining days. Her time on earth as a loving and strong mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt and friend was quickly being taken away by lung cancer. Lynn passed away on December 23, 2019. This disease is powerful in the worst way and takes way too many innocent lives like Lynn's every year. While Lynn's fight may be over, we are going to continue fighting against lung cancer in her honor and for everyone else battling it right now! Any amount of money donated is appreciated and I also invite you to join us in the walk/run to end lung cancer for good! Let's do this together for those who cant!
Support the fight to beat lung cancer!
I am fundraising for the VIRTUAL 14th Annual A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities because:
- Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer, claiming more lives than breast and colon cancers COMBINED;
- An estimated 145,000 Americans will die of lung cancer this year. 60% are nonsmokers when diagnosed; and
- Lung cancer research remains proportionately underfunded per cancer death.
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 donate to support my team's fight against America's deadliest cancer.
