THE STORY:

On March 16, I will be running the 2014 NYC Half in order to raise money for Run As One, a joint fundraising between the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation and LUNGevity, non-profit organizations dedicated to preventing lung cancer through research and awareness. I am very excited to participate in this event, and hope that my hard work and dedication will help me across the finish line. But I need your help.

All donations are of course tax deductible.

Lung cancer remains the leading cancer killer among both men and women in the United States.  Furthermore, many don’t realize that more than 60 percent of people newly diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked or have quit smoking. Over 50 percent of new lung cancer cases will be diagnosed at a very late stage—Stage IIIb or IV—when treatment options are limited. Only five percent of those diagnosed will live more than five years after diagnosis! This could be prevented if an early detection tool was available, and continued research is the key.

To this end, Labrecque Foundation and LUNGevity remain committed to spreading lung cancer awareness in order to end the stigmas associated with the disease, knowing that greater understanding will bring increased funding. Medical research has enabled women to survive breast cancer and men to survive prostate cancer. The same can be done for lung cancer patients, but only with increased awareness and a greater commitment to funding for critical research.
I hope you will please join me in supporting this very important cause.
Sincerely
Adriana Lopez
