This is the hardest working charity I have found. For such a small group of people, they conduct dozens of walks and charitable benefits across the country in a single year. Their community outreach is so extensive. Their website and staff both help those affected with lung cancer and also for those who know someone affected by lung cancer. You can talk to someone who truly understands and that can help the body, as well as, the soul.
