100% of what we raise will go to Dr. Govindan's research at Sitemen Cancer Center. They are offering treatments now that were not even possible 6 months ago, and we are determined to keep the momentum alive.
How to blow up lung cancer:
Step 1) Find something to blow up. (balloons, bubbles, even bags and pool toys work great. Get creative)
Step 2) Have a friend video you blowing it up to raise awareness for lung cancer
Step 3) Share your video on Facebook and challenge friends to blow up lung cancer. Don't forget to include a link to this fundraiser page, and hashtag #BlowUpLungCancer
Did you know that November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month? Lung Cancer is the biggest cancer killer in the world, accounting for 1.6 million deaths annually -- more than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer.
Despite these statistics, Lung Cancer continues to be a commonly misunderstood and stigmatized disease. Many are unaware of the lack of research, funding, and awareness for Lung Cancer until someone close to them is diagnosed. In 2015, approximately 221,000 Americans were diagnosed with lung cancer, and the disease represented 13% of all new cancers diagnosed worldwide.
This November and December, Lung Cancer Connection wants to donate every penny raised from its Blow Up Lung Cancer Campaign directly to Dr. Govindan and his team’s Lung Cancer research at Siteman Research Center in St. Louis, MO.
Join us as we work to raise awareness and support for Lung Cancer in the community. Blow up a balloon or a piece of gum, love your lungs, and honor a lung cancer patient who struggles for each breath.
