Lung Cancer Kills More People than
Any Other Type of Cancer
Including thousands that have never smoked. Despite the stigma that many people attach to lung cancer, it's a disease that needs our attention. The Take A Breath For Life Foundation looks to raise awareness and reseach money to combat this deadly disease. In 2009 I was handed the diagnosis of lung cancer. I was 49 years old and had never smoked. As a teenager I had lost my mother also a non-smoker to the same disease just before her 53rd birthday so the diagnosis was that much more surreal. The Take a Breath for Life foundation was conceived in 2010 in response to that lung cancer diagnosis. Our primary focus is to raise funds from community based charitable events for cancer research and education. As we are an all volunteer, not for profit third party donator we choose our beneficiaries yearly and host a fundraiser that directly funds that organization’s support of our goals. Last year, in 2010, we raised and donated over $8,000.00 to the American Cancer Society and the American Lung Association.
