Mission Statement

To be a leading contributor to the cure of lung cancer by focusing on disease awareness, early detection and lung cancer treatments. A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation fights lung cancer by funding innovative research and raising awareness through education and patient support. Knowing that awareness, earlier detection and improved treatments will save lives, ABOH has created three program vehicles for carrying out its mission. Our programs will lead to: Increased research; Increased outreach, especially in low income communities where lung cancer is most prevalent; and Increased support of patients who often face this cancer with little or no support.

Description

In 2007, a small group of lung cancer patients, along with committed family members and their caregivers from Fairview Southdale Hospital, created the first Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk. The success of this event led to the formation of A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation in 2008. Thanks to a talented and committed volunteer board of directors and the addition of professional staff in 2012, A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation has grown steadily.

A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation knows that increased research efforts and public awareness will improve the survivor rate. Most of our board of directors and growing family of supporters, now numbering over 10,000, have experienced lung cancer or have lost a loved one to this deadly cancer. We continue our endeavors to make every second count, to believe each step is a breath of hope, and to share our compassion and support with all who are impacted by lung cancer, regardless of smoking status.
