I am joining thousands of other cyclists in the Trek Across Maine, a 200-ish bike ride in Maine. I am honored to help the American Lung Association raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness of issues involving lung health. 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.
As a practicing doctor, I see daily the ramifications of lung disease in my patients. I have asthma and am well aware of what it feels like to be short of breath. As a regular outdoor athlete, I truly appreciate clean air. We all breath; these issues impact us all. To show my support, I have made a large personal donation to the Americvan Lung Association. Your support is also critical. Please join me in my efforts to make a difference. Please make a donation.
Thank you in advance for you support!
