In March of 2011, Mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. She fought as hard as anyone could ever fight and lost her courageous battle on December 10th. We all miss Mom every day, and supporting the Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation is our way to let Mom know we are here to always battle against this disease.
During the First Annual 5K in 2011, Mom cheered on the runners and we raised a little over $3,000. Mom met Bonnie Addario and many wonderful people from The Foundation and that day was a memorable one for Mom. She was so grateful for what the Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation was doing, and she was proud that her family was doing their part to help fight lung cancer.
Over the past six years, we have helped out in memory of our Amazing Mom. Each year we have helped with setting up the event, had over 60 people come in Mom’s honor, proudly wore our “Kathleen’s Krew” shirts and raised over $80,000. And this event was very special to Dad, as he did his part to fight lung cancer.
For this year, we have set our goal to raise another $10,000 and we hope you can join “The Krew” in Philadelphia. Please donate, walk, run or volunteer in memory of Mom, and support us as we also do our part to fight lung cancer.
