I'm breathing harder so you can breathe easier!
For the 12th straight year, I will join other cyclists and the American Lung Association in the Trek Across Maine in June. This is a journey across Maine to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health.
Lung disease has affected my family, my coworkers and my friends. It 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.
