Support Leah's Bay State Marathon run benefitting lung cancer research at Mass General.
For those of you who are not aware I lost my father to lung cancer in 1999 and my mother has been VALIANTLY fighting the disease for the past 4 years. Without the support and expertise of Thoracic Oncologist, Dr. Alice Shaw and Thoracic Surgeon, Dr. Christopher Morse my mother would not be here today. On October 21, 2012 I will be running my second marathon and I would like to use this experience as a fundraiser for lung cancer research. Lung cancer is the most common cause of death due to cancer in both men and women throughout the world. According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, approximately one out of every 14 men and women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer of the lung at some point in their lifetime. In the 13 years since my father has passed the treatment options have grown immensely, my mother is living proof. Imagine the advancement in the next 13 years. Please help me support research to stop this deadly disease, with your help can put an end to this.
