Denise's Good Deeds
We are all here, on this website, because we have lost a loved one, or are joined in the struggle to save one. For those of us who have felt that final loss, not a day goes by that we do not wish them to be with us again, to share in our lives, to experience what we are experiencing. The last couple of years, though, one word, one feeling seems to dominate our lives – unprecedented. We seem to hear this word every single day, for this is a year unlike any we have ever experienced; and for the first time, every once in a while, we find ourselves feeling relieved that our loved ones are at peace, and are free of the trials that we are living with day after day. That feeling passes quickly, though, because when all is said and done, we’d rather have Denise here with us, and we would love to hear what she’d have to say about all of these “unprecedented” events!
Not everything unprecedented is bad, however. In the last couple of years, there have been unprecedented advances in lung cancer treatment, advances that, for the first time, give everyone who is suffering from this disease real hope. Those advances happen because, year after year, we gather to run, walk, and contribute to this cause. Of course, this year we cannot gather in person (unprecedented!), but we will gather in spirit, and do what we always do – find a way to defeat lung cancer, once and for all.
Here are three ways you can join us in making this vision a reality:
- Donate to a team member to support our fundraising efforts – find the team list on the right side of this page
- Click on the “Join” button to join our team
- Spread the word about our fundraising efforts by sending the link to this webpage to everyone you know
The money we raise together will support the Lung Cancer Research Foundation and its mission to improve lung cancer outcomes by funding research for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of lung cancer. On event day, our team will enjoy being together, but the real reward is that we're raising funds that will save lives. You can help us bring hope to those affected by lung cancer.
Please donate today and invite a friend to do the same. If you can join our team for the event, we’d love to have you! We can’t wait to celebrate our successes with you on event day.
