This July I'll be climbing Mt. Rainier as part of the American Lung Association 2023 Climb for Clean Air series - I am doing this to raise funds that will go to assist people who are less lucky than me, and have to fight for every breath.
More than 36 million Americans suffer of lung illness, and many of such diseases are triggered by air pollution. Fighting for better air quality through research and advocacy has been at the center of my professional career and personal life for over a decade. If you know me, you know that clean air matters a great deal to me.
That is why I decided to join the Climb for Clean Air and be part of making a difference in the lives of lung disease patients and their caregivers. I'm climbing for a healthier future, and to support groundbreaking research, and critical advocacy work and education.
The money we raise will provide lifesaving treatments and dramatically improve the quality of life for Americans diagnosed with lung disease. Every day, every minute and every second counts.
Please join me today and help us save more lives.
