Introducing A Breath of Hope 2020 Research Fellow
At A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation (ABOH), we are committed to funding high-quality translational lung cancer research in areas that are critically shaping lung cancer survival rates. Despite a worldwide pandemic, racial tension, protests and a struggling economy, we press on knowing that the lung cancer community cannot wait for the problems to resolve. Today’s lung cancer patients need our help today!

Due to current safety recommendations, the 14th annual A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities will be happening virtually August 8 and 9. Invite friends from anywhere in the world to run or walk the virtual 5K/10K and help your team raise dollars for the fight to end lung cancer. Walk or run in your neighborhood with your family or ‘safe’ group of friends – socially distanced, of course! All participants will have the option to share pictures and submit their time to receive a commemorative participation certificate.
The A Breath of Hope community is grieving as we contemplate the recent heartbreaking murder of Mr. George Floyd while in police custody, and the violence and pain that has followed. George Floyd was a person known for volunteering and helping others – a loved member of the Minneapolis community. He was someone’s brother, son, father, grandfather, friend, and employee. His life had purpose and we grieve not just the loss of this man, but a growing feeling of discouragement as our country copes with both the pandemic and a disturbing event that leaves us questioning our core values. Our sympathy goes out to all who are hurting today.
#GiveAtHomeMN May 1 – 8
GiveMN has launched a week-long giving campaign to help Minnesotans support their favorite charities during this critical time. And the best part – they waived their fees! Thanks for considering a donation to A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation.
