Take a Breath..............How does it Feel............Breathe again..........
Breathing is something most people don't think about. Breathing just happens. Your lungs allow you to breathe.......... they also allow you to talk to a friend, shout, sing, laugh, cry, and more. Lung cancer can change all that.
In September 2020, I will be participating in the Virtual Eau Claire Marathon (completing the Half Marathon) as part of Team Breathe in support of the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. Our team captains brother, Don, was a 10 year lung cancer survivor. Don passed away in February 2020. Don is an inspiration that you can live with lung cancer. He has been fighting the battle and has helped to further lung cancer research, treatment, advocacy, and support.
Since joining Team Breathe I have learned of others diagnosed with lung cancer including some of my close family & friends. Some have not survived.........more are now living with cancer.
My photo represents both present (myself) and future (my grandson) generations. With your support, we can make a difference with lung cancer in the present and future generations so we can all BREATHE!
Lung cancer often has no symptoms until it has spread. Lung Cancer is the Leading cause of Cancer Death, but receives the least amount of amount of federal research funding.
Raising awareness of lung cancer and funding programs that research new treatments and support those closely impacted is important to me.
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 their mission to change the reality of living with lung cancer by ending stigma, increasing public and private research funding, and ensuring access to care. Together, we can make a difference!
In honor of Don Stranathan, who passed away on February 1, 2020. Don battled lung cancer for 10 years and never stopped fighting. As I read the comments from the facebook post about his passing, it shined through as to what an amazing advocate and support he was to so many people.
'We all die. The goal isn't to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.' Rest in Peace Don.
Please donate to Team Breathe to help support lung cancer awareness,
advocacy, and research.
