Lisa Hirano walks for the Bonnie Addario Lung Cancer Foundation

Lisa Hirano

Thank you for visiting my page. This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get! Together we can make a difference!

Did you know -
* 20% of women who get lung cancer are never smokers
* There is no early detection for lung cancer.
* Lung cancer kills more women than any other cancer. Lung cancer alone kills more women than the next four top cancers combined —nearly 200 women each day and most die within a year of diagnosis.
* Research funding and survival rates for lung cancer have remained very low. Breast cancer gets 20x the funding of lung cancer; and the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer is about 20x higher than lung cancer as well.
* 60% of East Asian women who are never smokers who get lung cancer have a genetic mutation that is driving the lung cancer, and are usually responsive to a targeted drug therapy for the first line of defense in lieu of taking radiation or chemotherapy or surgery as the first options!

Two years ago a dear friend of mine, Joan, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Joan was never a smoker. Joan has made it past 21 months since her diagnosis. Her strong faith gives her strength and hope while she goes through clinical trials and therapies to battle the disease.

For Joan, I am walking to raise awareness of lung cancer and request support for the Bonnie Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. The Bonnie Addario Foundation funds clinical research and provides patient programs to increase the survival rate for lung cancer patients.

Please join us in raising awareness for research to figure out how to make lung cancer a chronic disease instead of an early killer.

Thank you so very much for your prayers and support.

Best - Lisa
