2022 A Breath of Hope Peg’s Fight for Life Research Award – $150,000
Peg’s Fight for Life Research Award:
A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation (ABOHLF) will provide funding to the winning clinical investigator in the form of a $150,000 award paid every six months for two years. The award is designed to support salaries and other costs related to retaining research talent in the field of lung cancer. Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer killing nearly 150,000 Americans each year, yet research funding support remains disproportionately low per cancer death. Consequently, progress is limited, and talented scientists often move to other, better-funded research fields. Through ABOHLF Fellowships, we ensure that chosen research institutions have the resources needed to retain promising scientists committed to reducing the U.S. lung cancer mortality rate.
