“You really can change the world if you care enough.” – Marian Wright Edelman
Our team is taking a stand against lung cancer in the memory of Pedro Villalobos, and we hope you'll stand with us! Together, we can make a difference for those affected by this devastating disease. We can show the world that it’s time to make surviving lung cancer the expectation, not the exception.
Our dad passed from lung cancer on December 10, 2018. This was almost 11 months after his initial diagnosis and two months shy of his 65th birthday. With the right treatment, Pedro could have lived to see his 68th birthday, his 36th wedding anniversary, his granddaughter's fifth birthday, and his families' milestones. Your donation can help fund lifesaving lung cancer research and education programs focused on making surviving lung cancer the expectation, not the exception. You have the power to give families hope when a loved one is facing a lung cancer diagnosis.
This year, we will be walking in Pedro's memory to raise funds at the New York Free to Breathe walk on October 22nd at Cadman Plaza in NY. Here are three ways you can join us in making this vision a reality:
- Donate to a team member to support our fundraising efforts
- 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
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.
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity. Together, we can make a difference for each and every person whose life has been touched by lung cancer.
