Volunteer of the Month

A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation (ABOH) is so grateful for all of the wonderful volunteers that support our mission. Each month the ABOH staff selects one volunteer that goes above and beyond and features them here. This month, we are proud to highlight Teri Kast, as ABOH’s Volunteer of the Month!

Learn More About Teri:

Teri is one of those people who never stops giving. Since she joined our all-volunteer board of directors a few years ago, she has moved up to board vice-chair where she now conducts many of the administrative duties of the board and serves on our nominating and research subcommittees. Teri brings expertise as a former oncology nurse and is known to be a strong patient advocate during the research review process.

Teri also volunteers her time with the ABOH Patient and Family Support Program as a survivor group facilitator, and she has become a trusted expert for many of our program participants.

Teri received her BA in Nursing from the College of St. Catherine and her MS in Nursing with a focus in Oncology from the University of Minnesota. She has over 30 years of experience in oncology nursing, the last 22 years as a Clinical Nurse Specialist with Thoracic Surgery/Thoracic Oncology at the University of Minnesota. She helped create one of the first multidisciplinary lung cancer teams in the state of Minnesota and was involved in the design and implementation of the Lung Cancer Screening program at University of Minnesota Health.

Thank you, Teri, for all you do to bring peace, joy and hope to those that live with lung cancer.
