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.
After decades of smoking, my mom died 20 years ago from lung cancer. I was in my late 30s, married with two small children. We all got cheated out of years of knowing and loving my mom and my kids' grandma.
My commitment is to continue to raise awarenness about the dangers of tobacco and other substances that hurt our ability to breathe. I have ridden in the Cycle for Air (Clean Air Challenge) for many years to support the Lung Association's efforts around a cure and treatment for lung cancer and other lung diseases.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
