I am joining thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health.
Lung disease has been ever-present in my life. My mother was a smoker, and I grew up with seemingly endless bouts of pneumonia, bronchitis, and respiratory infections. My struggles didn't improve until we banished second-hand smoke from the workplace.
Then, in 2004, my wife Patty was diagnosed with advanced-stage lung cancer, which took over our lives in terror. She survived, miraculously, and ever since then we've both done all we can to support the Lung Association and fight this scourge. I am grateful and proud to ask for your help.
Lung disease can take someone's breath away, leaving them unable to work, exercise or play. Growing faster than almost any other major illness, lung disease, including lung cancer, asthma and emphysema is the third leading cause of the death in the United States.
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
Thank you in advance for you support!
