About LUNGevity Foundation: LUNGevity Foundation is firmly committed to making an immediate impact on increasing quality of life and survivorship of people with lung cancer by accelerating research into early detection and more effective treatments, as well as providing community support and education for all those affected by the disease. Our vision is a world where no one dies of lung cancer.

About this event: Breathe Deep DC was created in 2009 by the late Jerry Sorkin, a Bethesda resident, husband, father of two, and nine-year lung cancer survivor. Jerry dedicated his life to working on behalf of people diagnosed with lung cancer, serving as the Vice Chairman of LUNGevity's Board of Directors, an advocate, and most importantly, a friend to everyone he met. Each year Breathe Deep DC hosts thousands of participants who come out to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer. The event has raised over $2 million since it began.

Mission Statement

LUNGevity Foundation is firmly committed to making an immediate impact on increasing quality of life and survivorship of people with lung cancer by accelerating research into early detection and more effective treatments, as well as providing community, support, and education for all those affected by the disease.

Description

We focus on research because the link between research spending and improved survival is clear. Survival rates have dramatically improved for colorectal, breast, and prostate cancers over the last several decades in step with the exponential growth in their research spending. Our goal is to accelerate progress for lung cancer in the same way, in order to dramatically improve on the current 17% five-year survival rate.

To date, LUNGevity has funded 115 research projects at 58 institutions in 23 states. LUNGevity research investments focus on early detection, because survival rates rise when lung cancer is detected while still localized. We also focus on more effective treatment approaches-getting the right treatment to the right patient at the right time to help people with lung cancer live longer and better.

LUNGevity also provides a community of empowerment, support, and hope for everyone affected by lung cancer through our extensive educational resources, online peer-to-peer support, and in-person survivorship programs, as well as more than 80 grassroots awareness and fundraising events held from coast to coast each year.
