I am running in the New York City Marathon on November 3 to raise money for the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. Lung cancer claims more lives than any other cancer in the United States. If it had its own category, lung cancer among non-smokers would rank in the top ten for number of deaths per year.
I have had two close friends, who were fellow ophthalmologists, who recently passed away from this awful disease. I am training and running in the memory of my friends, Qais and Mark.
Please help me support GO2 Foundation For Lung Cancer by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance GO2 Foundation For Lung Cancer's mission to help change the reality of living with lung cancer by ending stigma, increasing research funding and ensuring access to care. Together, we are stronger!
No amount is too little. I will match your donation dollar for dollar (up to $2500 total) to reach my goal of raising $5000 to help defeat this disease.
