Help me increase lung cancer survival!
Since losing my mom to lung cancer in July of 2020, exercise has become an important part of my health and well-being journey; it has been the best way for me to channel my grief.
The next step on my journey will be the New York City Half Marathon, on March 19, 2023. I am excited to have the opportunity to run with members of the Free to Breathe Team LCRF. This will be a challenge for me as it will be my first race longer than a 5 K. But as this cause is so near and dear to my heart, I am willing to push out of my comfort zone to finish this race, while raising money for an amazing foundation. Thankfully, my cousin Sarah will be running with me, so we will support each other every step of the way.
A lung cancer diagnosis changes your life and the life of those you love. In my family we have heard the words “you have lung cancer” too many times. I am running this half marathon in honor of my mother, Kathleen, who bravely faced two lung cancer diagnoses, fought fiercely, but sadly, lost her battle on July 28th, 2020. I miss my mother more than anything, and I am always reminded of how brave she was and she continues to serve as my inspiration to keep moving and keep smiling! I also run in memory of my beautiful cousin, Maureen, who lost her courageous battle with lung cancer on April 12, 2020.
By supporting LCRF we are helping to raise awareness and crucial funding for treatment and research to help improve lung cancer outcomes. Please visit www.lungcancerresearchfoundation.org to learn more about the important work this foundation is doing.
Can I count on you to help me reach my goal of raising $2,000 for LCRF? Your donation will help make surviving lung cancer the expectation, not the exception. We have the power to give families hope when a loved one is facing a lung cancer diagnosis.
