"Grandmas hold our tiny hands for just a little while but our hearts forever."
People closest to me know that my Grandma has been fighting lung cancer for over 2 years now. I lost my other Grandma to lung cancer 17 years ago.
It is never easy to see someone you love go through this especially when survival statistics are grim. I will be running the NYC marathon in honor of my grandmothers and to raise money for The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation.
The foundation was started by a patient and its mission is to increase survival. Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of women and someone dies from it every 3.3 minutes. 1 in 15 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime.
Please help by donating, so that together we can make a difference. We need to continue to fund research to help make this disease more manageable and increase survival. Funds will be used to help those currently fighting as well as those who may be in the future.
