I participate in a Breathe Deep 5k in memory of my dad and aunt. Its always really great and they really care about the people that come.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would wish they had a physical presence in every state.

I first became aware of Lungevity through LCSC. Thanks to Katie and all the other folks that are part of the online community I found support during my mother's short battle with lung cancer and have continued to receive the love and support from these folks in the years since. I couldn't have made it through without them. Since then, I founded my own charitable organization (with Katie's help) and have raised funds for Lung Cancer research. Lungevity has been the single largest recipient of those funds because I am confident that they are good stewards of the resources we provide and their mission is a riteous one. This is a great organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

so many ways. Both in the lung cancer support community which really is a family as well as through the reports of the research which is currently being funded.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the support community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

not even come close to closing the gap that exists between the funding for Lung Cancer versus other cancers.
