Running for Air

Together a team of family and friends will run the Long Island 5K on May 3rd at Eisenhower Park in honor of my parents, Alice & Lou Borkowski.

I lost both of my parents within a two year period due to Lung Cancer. It was a time in their lives when they should have been enjoying their golden years but instead they fell victim to this horrible disease and were taken from us way too soon.

Research provides hope and save lives. This is especially true when it comes to lung cancer research. Research has helped in the understanding of how lung cancer is caused, how it works, how it can be prevented, how it is detected it and how the various types are best treated.

However, more research is needed as not all our questions have been answered. Lung cancer still remains the leading cause of cancer deaths claiming more lives each year than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. Yet lung cancer receives significantly less research funding than these other cancers.

After seeing the impact that this horrible disease has had on my parents and family I decided to do whatever I can to help prevent others from experiencing this pain.

Please help to support our team and the American Lung Association by making a donation.

Thank You!
