Breathe Deep South Jersey is the longest running lung cancer walk in South Jersey!
Hello! -- My name is Heather Geraghty. I was diagnosed with lung cancer at the age of 24. Almost one month after my diagnosis I had two-thirds of my right lung removed at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital. January 20, 2013 marked my two year survival of the disease. Only months after my invasive surgery, I began a mission to spread awareness for this disease. With the support of the largest non-profit organization for lung cancer, LUNGevity Foundation, I have overcome the most devastating experience of my life.
If you are a lung cancer survivor, or know someone who has been impacted by lung cancer I employ you, please show your support for this disease. Formally known as Heather Saler’s Lung Cancer Walk, Breathe Deep South Jersey to be held on November 2nd at Cooper River Park Pennsauken, New Jersey. It is a walk that aims to raise awareness and funding for lung cancer research, but also bring all those who have been impacted by the disease together. I will be collecting donations for a live auction and monetary sponsorships. Please e-mail me directly at LungCancerFundraiser@gmail.com if you are interested in a donation of any kind.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. As a survivor, your support means everything. If you would like more insight on LUNGevity Foundation’s events, values, and online support community please visit the main website at: www.lungevity.org.
