FIND AN EVENT IN YOUR STATE

  Lung Cancer is a devastating disease. Funding to develop improved screening, treatments and cures has been and continues to be woefully inadequate. We need to work together to improve awareness which in turn will hopefully lead to more support for requests for state and federal funds.
The purpose of this site is to provide all Lung Cancer event listings in one place. There are many worthwhile non-profit lung cancer advocacy sites but none list ALL organized activities and some only list their own events.

Please find an event in your area and lend it your support. If there is no event, start your own. All these events started with just a few people. Many event organizers will help you with information about how to start an event. Your event doesn't need to raise money - raising awareness and assembling a mailing list for lobbying your representatives is just as useful a goal. If a state is not linked above, it has no event at this time. It sure would be great to see one or more awareness events in every single state.
  • Number of Deaths, Five-Year-Survival-Rate: Limited Progress. Lung cancer will remain the #1 cancer killer this year, claiming another 160,000 lives: three times as many men as prostate cancer, nearly twice as many women as breast cancer. More people will die from lung cancer this year than breast, prostate, colon, leukemia, ovarian and cervical cancers — combined.

  • This deadly disease has taken the lives of over two million Americans since 2000. Of this number, over one million of these people never smoked or had quit smoking, often decades ago. This simply cannot be viewed as a 'smoker's disease'. That is not to say that smoker's 'deserve' lung cancer. How did smokers become 'victims' while the tobacco companies continue to make billions in profits? There is no legally available additive drug like cigarettes. People are allowed to get hooked, told to quit and then allowed to die with few treatment options available.
If you want to read all the news about lung cancer research every week, subscribe to the email newsletter produced by the Caring Ambassadors Lung Cancer Program. There are a few such newsletters but none of them are nearly as informative and inmpressive as the emailer compiled by Cindy Langhorne, CAPS Program Director.

Buster was taken too soon at the age of 57. Michelle and her family have learned that more than half of lung cancer diagnoses are in never- or former-smokers. If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer. This fun run is a way for the Meis Family, friends of Buster, and anyone who cares about lung cancer patients to celebrate Buster’s life, passion for running, and helping others, so his memory can continue on. Buster benefited from therapies developed for the genetic mutation in his lung cancer; it is his family’s goal to raise awareness and funding for lung cancer research, and to help other families benefit from the promise of medical research. 100% of the proceeds of the event will go to LUNGevity Foundation for lung cancer research, education, and support. Help us improve the survivorship of lung cancer… for all our families!

Newark
2016-05-07

Breathe Deep Newark was created in memory of Jean Mellars, mother of seven, who discovered she had lung cancer too late to do anything about it. One of her daughters became involved with LUNGevity Foundation in Chicago and brought the event to Newark not only to honor her mother's memory, but to raise awareness in the hope that others impacted by lung cancer (1 in 15 Americans!) have a better understanding of the facts, and to raise funds for research and early detection techniques.

Before Cara McManus passed away, at the age of 36, on April 24, 2015, she founded Breathe Deep Cleveland, a family 5K walk and fun run and bicycle event. Cara, who had been diagnosed with stage IV ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer just 20 months earlier, was an active cyclist and never-smoker. Carrying on the event in her memory was chairperson, Harriet Bauer, who lost her mother, Lois, to lung cancer in 2009. While Cara's and Lois’ outcomes were tragic, there is so much good news about lung cancer research. Matt Hinzay, a Cleveland resident, was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2011 when he was just 24 years old. Because of new treatments available, including clinical trials, Matt is hopeful for his future. LUNGevity Foundation provides significant funding for emerging lung cancer therapies. 100% of the proceeds of the event will go to LUNGevity Foundation for lung cancer research, education, and support. Help us improve survivorship of lung cancer… for all of our families! The course is stroller, wheelchair, pet, and bicycle friendly.

Breathe Deep Philadelphia 2016 was created to honor and support all of those affected by lung cancer. The Carcia family have been participants of this event for the last few years. Christine Carcia was diagnosed with lung cancer and fought a tough three-year battle with the disease. Her legacy lives on in her husband and three daughters. After watching LUNGevity Foundation guide their parents through the difficulties of cancer and the different decisions one has to make, it was easy for the girls to decide to get even more personally involved in the Foundation by coordinating this event. It is the goal of the Carcia family to not only honor their mother but also to create awareness in hope that others impacted by lung cancer (1 in 15 Americans!) have a better understanding of facts, and to raise funds for research and early detection techniques. Your support can make a HUGE impact on the lives of those affected, and the Carcia family has seen that in the support they received from LUNGevity. Please consider one of the many ways to get involved!
