March 27th was an important date. This year on that week Nelson and I went to Washington DC to asks the senators and representatives for additional support for those suffering from Lung related issues. March 27th is also the date that we lost my wife and mother to my son Nelson to lung cancer 10 years ago. We both ride in memory of her and to support others so they don't have to go through what we went through in loosing our loved one.
We are 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 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!
