Many of you might not know, but Lung Cancer has impacted me personally. My Grandfather in Queensland, Australia was a tobacco user- smoked and chewed, sadly he eventually contracted throat and lung cancer and died when I was so young I barely remember him; he was only in his late 50's when he died.
I'd like to think that Lung Cancer is the sort of disease that falls into the "low hanging fruit" category, that is highly avoidable. Your donations go to toward these cessation efforts and obviously some is allocated to research to study cures who have cancer.
At this point I've raised $30 towards my $100 goal for the American Lung Association in Oregon's Reach The Beach event. (Thank you very much to those who have contributed!)
I have until May 20th deadline to finish my fundraising so it will be here sooner than you might think.
You can make a donation by logging on to my secure page over at the American Lung Assoc.:
The American Lung Association will mail you an official receipt for tax purposes (all online donations get an email receipt).
Thanks again for all your support.
