I'm participating in an event to raise money to fight lung cancer—and I need your help!
In February 2014, I was diagnosed with Stage IIIb Lung Cancer. After surgery to remove my entire left lung, chemotherapy and radiation, it has spread and is now Stage IV. Thankfully, the NEW drug called Opdivo is keeping my cancer stable (no additional growth).
I'm planning to attend LUNGevity Foundation's National HOPE Summit in Washington, DC, in spring - it's a special conference just for lung cancer survivors like me. If I can raise $2,000 or more in donations, LUNGevity will cover my travel expenses, including US round-trip transportation and hotel accommodations (as well as my Caregiver). I was lucky enough to attend last year and I am convinced the knowledge I came home with has helped me continue my fight to beat this beast.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit LUNGevity Foundation, the leading private provider of research funding for lung cancer. Your donation goes directly to LUNGevity under my name.
LUNGevity Foundation is firmly committed to making an immediate impact on increasing quality of life and survivorship of people with lung cancer by accelerating research into early detection and more effective treatments, as well as providing community, support, and education for all those affected by the disease.
Every dollar helps. Please share my page with your friends and family as well. Lung Cancer effects everyone - smokers AND non-smokers.
Please join me in my efforts to stop lung cancer—the leading cancer killer—now!
