In 2019, my wife, Carla Schworer, lost her battle with Interstitial Lung Disease, a relentless, incurable disease for which only a lung transplant offered a few extra years of extremely compromised and painful continuance. She left hundreds of grieving friends and colleagues who adored her for her energetic and kindly approach to life and for her life long commitment to service at the SBA, Planned Parenthood, and FEMA.
On Nov. 4, I will be cycling 60 miles around the River Mountain Loop at Lake Mead and Boulder City joining thousands of other cyclists and the American Lung Association to raise money to fight lung disease and increase awareness about the importance of 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.
Please join me in my efforts to make a difference by making a personal or corporate tax-deductible donation.
Thank you in advance for you support!
