My dear friends and family,
My family and I will walk/run a 5K (3.1 miles) in San Francisco on 9/27/2015 to join a fundraising event for LungCancerFoundation.org. The organization founder, Bonnie Addario, is a lung cancer survivor. She started the famous in-person and on-line video meetings called the "Living Room" to 143 countries worldwide. These meetings feature top notch doctors/speakers delivering the latest lung cancer research information, as well as Q&A sessions. The foundation provides education, direction, help, and hope to lung cancer patients and their families.
Bonnie and her lung cancer foundations have been a tremendous personal support to me during my treatment. The research they support is making a difference, and provides hope to me and countless others in the fight against lung cancer. This cause is very dear to me, and I appreciate all the support I can get! No donation is too small. Together we can make a difference! Thank you and best wishes to you all.
Please read Bonnie's words: "I need $20.00 from a million people to make serious progress!!! There's so much hope now. I want to be out of business by 2023, where you don't need to come here. My goal is to make lung cancer chronically managed in the next decade by collaborating and partnering with strategic leaders and YOU in the lung cancer community worldwide. We need to tailor each patient's treatment based on their personal genetic/molecular profile, i.e. Personalized Medicine…every dollar gets us closer to our goal. Let's not let cancer take another day away from us. Please join my team to end lung cancer in our lifetime. You are my heroes. Invest in cancer-free days. No cancer today or for all our tomorrows. Need not be present to run for our team! Join me in our fight for surviving this disease" –Bonnie J. Addario"
