My name is Matt Ouellette from Waterville. I'm currently training to ride in the Trek Across Maine this coming year to commemorate my grandmother’s struggle with lung cancer and will be wearing #815 — her birthday was August 15th. Healthy lungs are something we take for granted with literally every breath. I've seen the struggle first-hand and it's heart-wrenching to see someone fight for air. I'm joining thousands of other cyclists and the ALA (American Lung Association) to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of lung health. With my Mimi's recent struggle and passing, it means more to me now than ever.
Lung disease 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.
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
Thank you in advance for your support! It means the world to me.
