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.
Did you know that 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. Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation. Ask your HR Department about matching gifts and see your donation double in support of my efforts and the mission of the American Lung Association.
My Mother-in-law passed away December 8th 2014 just a couple weeks before her 67th birthday from a form of lung cancer. We found out that she had cancer in August of 2014. She seemed pretty healthy at the time of diagnosis, but that quickly changed. It was eye-opening to see just how fast and hard lung cancer can spread and take someone down, especially someone as strong willed as she was. She is why I am riding the Trek across Maine and fundraising for the American Lung Association and Lung Cancer awareness.
Thank you in advance for your support!!
