Welcome to My Personal Page
Soon I will be joining more than thousands of others from around the
country in this year's Fight for Air Climbs to raise money for the
American Lung Association. I am gathering donations and walking
to help fight asthma, lung cancer, COPD and dozens of other lung
I am asking for your help. By making a contribution on my behalf,
you will be helping the American Lung Association provide community
based education programs, fight for cleaner air standards and fund
Asthma is the number one cause for school absenteeism and every day in
this country at least 10 people die from an asthma attack, thus it is
important that we provide disease management education to children when
they are 8, 9 or 10 years old. Lung Cancer is the leading cause
of cancer death globally and is woefully under funded when it comes to
research, thus is essential that we generate the awareness needed to
increase resources for advanced research projects. The average
age for American's to start a smoking habit is 14, thus it is critical
that we get into the elementary schools and teach children about the
dangers of tobacco use early.
All gifts are fully tax
deductible as The American Lung Association is a 501(c)3 organization
and is in fact one of the most recognized nationally for proper
management of the resources entrusted them since they began in
1904. You will receive a notice in the mail from me thanking you
for your gift which you can then use for your tax filing next
year. You may also make checks payable to The American Lung
Association (my climb team) and mail them to our local office.
Please take a deep breath....and be thankful that you can.
Millions of others suffer from lung disease daily and your support
makes the every day act of breathing that much easier for many people.
Together we can fight lung disease successfully.
