ABOH Benefit – Hosted by Julie Swedberg
August 19, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm CDT
Join Julie Swedberg as she celebrates six years of living with lung cancer!
Join us on Friday, August 19th to celebrate Julie’s six years of living with lung cancer! When she was first diagnosed, she was told she most likely had 12-18 months to live. Six years later, because of research, she is still here! This fundraiser is about raising research dollars to continue to provide life-saving options for herself and others.
Did you know that the Lung Cancer Research Program through the Department of Defense was unable to fund over 70% of the research proposals in 2021 that were rated “excellent” by scientific reviewers? Lung cancer remains underfunded per cancer death compared to other cancers, yet it is the number one cause of cancer death. Purchasing your ticket and joining us at the event, along with any donations we receive, will support the A Breath of Hope U.S. Research Award Program and it WILL have an impact on future outcomes for lung cancer patients, their caregivers, and loved ones!
