I have committed to join many other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a journey across Maine while raising money to support the fight against lung cancer, COPD, Asthma and other serious lung diseases. Among my goals is to increase awareness about the importance of lung health. I have a very personal interest in promoting awareness in lung heath, my Mom has battled with COPD for years and my two nephews and sister have Asthma. So the more I can do to help them and others breath better is one of my top priorities.
Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of both men and women today. Another alarming fact is that lung disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States.
My Dad died of lung cancer in 2002. The more we can do to promote lung health goes a long way to saving a life that doesn’t need to be taken from us early. Please join me and the American Lung Association in our efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
We all know someone that suffers from lung disease so let’s all pitch in and make that difference. Please support me in my 180-mile ride over 3 days on Father’s Day weekend.
Thank you in advance for your support!!!
