Volunteer of the Month — Rachel Carlson


Rachel Carlson is a selfless, dedicated volunteer who is always willing to assist and tackles large projects with determination. Rachel is the Event Co-Chair for the annual Women’s Wellness Tea each spring, a lead volunteer for the annual Twin Cities Lung Run/Walk, a lead volunteer for the first ever Chicago Lung Run/Walk, as well as the organizer for the annual Shine A Light on Lung Cancer Vigil.

Rachel gives back to A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation because she personally experienced the lack of public awareness and research funding while her mom battled her own lung cancer journey.

Rachel is an ultrasound technologist at CDI, a screening company and sponsor of A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation events, and advocates for preventative screening. You can see Rachel in CDI’s video on preventative lung cancer screening.

Thank you, Rachel. You are making a difference in the lives of those battling lung cancer.
