Thank you for visiting my Dawn Strong Portland Fundraising Page!
I can't wait to attend the 4th Annual Lung Love 5k event! Together, with Lung Cancer Alliance, we will bring hope, compassion and support for all of those touched by lung cancer, while raising national awareness and advocating for increased lung cancer research funding! After my diagnosis of lung cancer in 2014, I learned that my chances of survival within 5 years was less than 6%. If that wasn't shocking enough, I also learned that the reason for this low survival rate was due to a lack of funding because of the stigma that is associated with lung cancer. My goal is to raise awareness so that those diagnosed in the future will have a better chance of survival. Most people don't know that lung cancer is the number two killer of all Americans behind heart disease, yet it is the LEAST funded of ALL cancers! These facts are the reason for my passion and commitment to Lung Cancer Alliance in helping raise awareness. I hope you will join me at the 4th Annual Lung Love Run/Walk 5k on Saturday, June 23rd at Laurelhurst Park! If you can't walk with me, please consider donating to support Lung Cancer Alliance's mission of saving lives and advancing research by empowering those living with and at risk for lung cancer.
