Help me increase lung cancer survival!
5 years ago, my wife Reina was diagnosed with lung cancer. She discovered the disease at an early age after requesting a CT scan despite being non-smoker and having no symptoms. You see, Reina's mom died from lung cancer when she was young, so Reina thought the screen would be a good idea. She was right. Thankfully, Reina received amazing treatment, and she has been cancer free since then.
Reina’s treatment was made possible because of research into how to treat this devastating disease. In order to give back, Reina joined the Board of the Lung Cancer Research Foundation (LCRF) about 4 years ago, serving most recently as the Chair of the Board.
LCFR’s mission is to improve lung cancer outcomes by funding research for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of lung cancer. LCRF plays a pivotal role in funding for lung cancer research. To date, LCRF has provided 409 research grants totaling over $42 million, the largest amount provided by any organization dedicated to lung cancer research. The research that LCRF is funding is making a difference. Today, there are more treatment options than ever before, as we have seen an acceleration of FDA approvals in recent years for new immunotherapies and targeted therapies to treat lung cancer.
On Nov 5th, I will be running my first marathon, the NYC Marathon, to support Reina, and to create awareness and raise money for LCRF. And, it is a family affair, as my brother in law, Todd, and niece, Hannah, will also be joining me. We would appreciate your support.
