Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my Lung Love Run/Walk Portland Fundraising Page!
Two years ago, I had the priveledge of traveling to Washington, D.C. with Lung Cancer Alliance to educate and lobby congress for lung cancer research and funding. It was a powerful and moving experience in democracy, and in advocating in a meaningful way for a cause that I am passionate about. That passion comes from both my own twelve-year battle with lung cancer, but also from understanding that 160,000 people a year are in the same situation.
This year, Genevieve will be joining me in DC in April (independently), and also in July with Lung Cancer Alliance, as we take advantage of two more opportunities to lobby congress again. NONE OF THE FUNDS RAISED WILL PAY FOR OUR TRAVEL EXPENSES. We will pay for those ourselves, so that ALL of the funds that you donate or raise will go directly to Lung Cancer Alliance and their mission.
Please join my team, Live Lung and Prosper. We will be running/walking the Lung Love Run/Walk 5k on Saturday, June 23rd at Laurelhurst Park. If you can't run/walk with me, please consider a donation to support Lung Cancer Alliance's mission of saving lives and advancing research by empowering those living with and at risk for lung cancer.
This year, our goal is to have 30 team members, and for our team to raise $3,500. My personal goal is to raise $2,500. Please join us, and help make cancer a word we can all live with.
