Participating in the LUNG FORCE WALK has offered me a meaningful purpose, taking action in honoring my father Tom Stemlar. After antibiotics failed to resolve his persistent cough, I was astonished to learn of his stage IV lung cancer diagnosis. An active extrovert, he lived the life of a seemingly healthy individual. Dad was a loving, generous and selfless man. He imparted wisdom and stories that I will never forget. His adventurous spirit and positive outlook challenges me to spread the word and unite in team to combat lung disease in hopes for a world where everyone can breath deeply and freely.
Your donation will support continued research to guide our understanding of lung functioning for both prevention and cures. Together, we can foster environments and lifestyles that promote healthy breathing.
