December 18, 2004 I lost my beautiful, spirited, fun-loving daughter Megan to a severe asthma attack at the age of 21. It was a day that forever changed me and my entire family! It is always difficult to lose a family member but to lose a child is devastating.
My daughter-in-law read an article about the Asthma Walk and we joined up in 2005 in memory of Megan. We gathered everyone we knew and became a mighty force of Megan’s Marchers to raise money and awareness of this disease.
For 13 years our mighty marchers have walked in the now Lung Force Walk donning a banner with Megan’s picture on it and have helped raise money and awareness of asthma, COPD (which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and other lung diseases.
Now I am asking all of my friends and acquaintances if they will help try to eliminate this disease and save the life of someone they love or know who suffers from lung issues. I don’t want another person to lose someone they love to this debilitating disease.
Won’t you consider donating to our cause and be a part of finding a cure? It doesn’t matter what dollar amount is donated, any amount is appreciated and will help breathe the breath of life for someone who cannot. And we would love to have you walk with us on Saturday, May 19 at 9:30 at Burke Lakefront Airport. It’s a lot of fun, food, raffles and camaraderie and I’d like to think that Megan helps make the day sunny for our walk!
Thank you, for your continuous support and help in this cause that is so dear to my heart and the heart of my family. March on Megan’s Marchers, we will never forget!
