Mary N., NY

I started participating in Lung Force walks about 4 years ago. I lost my mother and sister to lung cancer. My sister was only 50 years old and passed away in 2010, and my mom was 70 and passed away in 1998. After each was diagnosed they only survived 4 to 5 months. Our lives have been impacted forever.

My mom and my oldest sister were the glue in our family. My brother passed away from heart disease in 2016. He had a heart attack and died at 50. I formed the team 2pegs to walk in their honor. Anything I can do to raise awareness and help in their name so someone else does not have to suffer I will do. I consider it an honor. We have participated 4 years in the lung walks and every year we raise more money. I hope that is the case this year.
