LUNG FORCE Walk - Providence
I walk in memory of my loving partner of 23 years, Karen, who lost her battle to Stage 4 Lung Cancer on March 20, 2019. Karen was 53 years young and passed away 11 days after diagnosis. In June 2019, I participated in my first LungForce walk in Karen’s memory to advocate for early screenings and support ALA’s mission. As a supporter and member of the Providence LungForce walk committee and member of the Rhode Island Leadership Board, I continue to promote lung disease awareness and advocate for Karen and early screenings. I hope you will join the Buzzin' Bee's FORCE.
