Outrun Lung Cancer
This May, I'm running in the Vancouver Marathon and have decided to partner with the Lung Cancer Research Foundation to raise money and awareness to combat a disease that entered my life in a real way in the past year. Last summer, my father was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer with EGFR mutation. This was a scary experience that left us wondering what the path forward looked like, and what potential outcomes were on the table.
Luckily, my Dad found an incredible doctor. And research had generated an incredible drug. Twenty years ago, such a situation would not be likely. But today, my Dad is able to continue living his life and maintaining his health by taking a pill once a day that, in the near term, inhibits further growth of the cancer.
There's more work to be done though - research continues in order to find drugs and treatments that will fill in after the effectiveness of this drug declines (which it does after a period of time).
That's where Lung Cancer Research Foundation comes in - your donation helps fund lifesaving lung cancer research and education programs focused on making surviving lung cancer the expectation, not the exception.
If you can, please help me reach my fundraising goal and drive lung cancer research and awareness forward. Help me outrun lung cancer :)
