My Message

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Your support is appreciated as I participate in Hustle Chicago. I'll be leading my team, Speedy Delivery, and racing up 94 floors to the top of the Hancock Building. All donations will support the mission of Respiratory Health Association to prevent lung disease, promote clean air and help people live better through education, research, and policy change.

My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in May 2018 - so the mission of the Hustle and Respiratory Health Association has taken on personal importance. My mom has never smoked and has always taken great care of herself so this was a huge shock to all of us. I think we're all still in the process of understanding exactly what her diagnosis means for her and our family. All things considered, she's been really fortunate. She's had a couple rounds of radiation but is able to do targeted therapy - a pill a day instead of general chemotherapy - which is less harsh on her body. While she deals with pain, fatigue and other side-effects, we're all really thankful for the care she's receiving and how she's responding to treatment. My dad is an amazing partner to her - going to doctor appointments, taking care of household responsibilities when she doesn't have the energy and encouraging her to be positive. 

Lung cancer is surprisingly common in women and among non-smokers. Recent advancements in treatment have been a positive step but more needs to be done. Supporting organizations like RHA is a great place to start. Please consider donating; no amount is too small.

Thank you!

Kevin
