THE STORY:


I have made a commitment to raise $10,000. Please help me as I run in honor of my friend and mentor and LCF Founder, Bonnie Addario and all families affected by lung cancer with a donation to my fundraising page. No donation is too small (or big!) An amazing 90% of all monies raised through the LCF Marathon Program go directly to research and patient programs. The LCF is an amazing foundation, whose goal is urgent – to significantly improve the inexcusably low survival rate of lung cancer in patients.

I joined the LCF team a year ago and learned about the inequities of lung cancer. I will admit like most I didn't understand Anyone Can Get Lung Cancer or about the underfunding, the appalling survival rates, the stigmas and the death rates all shocked me while at the same time has inspired me to challenge myself with this half marathon and raise money and awareness.  Everyone needs to know that lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer.  It kills more people than breast, prostate, colon, liver, melanoma and kidney cancers combined. However, for every $26 dollars spent on breast cancer in America, $1 is spent on lung cancer.  The underfunding of lung cancer research has kept its survival rate at 15.5%, as low as it was in 1971.  These statistics are disheartening and make a compelling case that the funding of lung cancer research needs to be greatly increased.  It is for these reasons that I am asking for your support.  Now more than ever, lung cancer patients and families need assistance.  

Since its inception LCF has raised over $10 million, allocating $6.5 million to delivering and developing patient education programs and over $3.5 million awarded in research grants.
