I have done the Free ME for Lung Cancer walk event for about the past six years. My sister Irene and my grandchildren have walked with me around Capitol Park, and this year my daughter will participate.
One of the reasons is the tireless effort of Deb Violette, the founder and President of this Foundation, who works to keep as much of the money as possible in the state of Maine for research to end this nasty and debilitating disease. And I participate in memory of my husband and in honor of those who struggle with the disease.
We need runners and walkers to raise money to help Deb and the Board members find a cure. Thanks to Deb and every volunteer and participant!
Let's run this out of this world!!

I have known Deb Violette, a lung cancer survivor and founder of Free ME from Lung Cancer, for many years and have assisted her with a number of fund raising events. Her dedication to raising funds for lung cancer research, education, advocacy and community support is outstanding, and her efforts on behalf of the foundation are tireless. As a result, Free ME from Lung Cancer has been established as a major force for good in the lung cancer community.

Our foundation is growing in leaps and bounds. We are currently funding low dose CT scans to high risk patients who are under insured or have no insurance at a local hospital while funds are available. This is a great program.
