Our team is walking to raise money to fight lung cancer—will you join us?
Matt Riga was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer as a 34 year old non-smoker. Matt is a rock star of a fighter and will not stop! We are beyond grateful for the support we have around us and are so proud to be lung cancer advocates to help find a cure to this disease!
If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer. 1 in 15 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetimes. More people die of this disease each year over colon, breast and prostate cancer combined, yet it is seriously underfunded because of the stigma. Thankfully there are so many breakthroughs and so much hope on the horizon, but these ideas need to be funded!
Because there is no cure, Matt’s life is depending on lung cancer research and the positive support of those around him. Which is why we are participating in the Breath Deep Michigan 5K walk for the FOURTH year in a row! This walk provides an incredible opportunity to come together as a community to show support for those who are living with lung cancer and gratitude for the caregivers and medical professionals who are making an impact, and to honor those whom we have lost. Proceeds from this event will benefit LUNGevity Foundation, the leading private provider of research funding for lung cancer. Family, friends, kids, and dogs ALL welcome! Please join us at the walk on June 1st or by making a donation.
Let's change lung cancer together!
