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.
