Hi family and friends,
This is the hardest fundraiser i've ever joined. I've been holding on to this for over a month. Still not quite ready to accept the circumstances that have drawn me to this cause. Just like breast cancer, I've lost several family members to lung cancer. My grandfather, an aunt and most recently, the beautiful soul that was my Uncle Earl. Not only did lung cancer attack and destroy his lungs, it did in a matter of 3 short months. I cant express to someone who is not in this family what it feels like to have lost someone who we loved so much, so quickly. To see him fight with so much faith...and to lose him anyway, is still heartbreaking. Knowing that other families experience this same pain every day, having lost the beautiful soul in their family, is why I want you to walk with me. It's too late for our loved one, but maybe the money we raise and awareness we bring, will save another.
Together, with your help, we will walk to raise awareness and funds to defeat lung cancer and raise our voices for lung health.
That's why I have decided to participate in the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk. When you join the American Lung Association and LUNG FORCE, you support research innovation that will lead to early detection for all and better treatments that give everyone a fighting chance.
Your donation and participation will help make a difference in the lives that desperately need it.
To support my efforts, and to help save lives today, please donate now.
We will stand together for lung health and against lung cancer!
