This is the fourth year that I have decided to join many other cyclists and the American Lung Association in a journey across Maine to be held in mid-June while raising money to support the fight against lung cancer, COPD, Asthma and other serious lung diseases. Despite my best efforts to maintain my conditioning, I face new and different challenges each year. In October 2018 during a workout, my heart rhythym became erratic and I was rushed to hospital. I was crest fallen to learn that I had atrial fibrillation. The good news was that my years of cycling kept my heart structurally sound, which gave me the confidence that I would recover and be able to resume cycling. Being able to sling my leg over the saddle this spring will be especially sweet. With your financial support, I will once again join hundereds of cyclists and volunteers that participate in this event.
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.
Thank you in advance for your support!!
