Life and Breath Rally

Life and Breath Rally

On the US Capital steps in Washington, DC this month. Thursday April 26th at 10am. Please join us. This rally is a grass roots effort to bring attention to the fact that lung cancer kills #433aDay. That is a national emergency.

Anyone else going? I’m really looking forward to it. This photo is myself on the left and Anita (Scifiknitter) at the first Life & Breath Rally.

denzie you two are looking good. I wish i could i don,t travel but i will be there know that. i just spent two days in hospital a couple months ago i was told i had gastritis i was,nt doing what i was supposed to so now i have an ulcer. i have to take sucralfate 4 times a day and prilisec and eat i was,nt eating much i was told the acid had nothing to digest so it was eating my lower esophagus and lining of stomach. It was extremely painful. So i have to do what i,m supposed to do so it will heal and not end up turning to cancer. How are you doing good i hope. love susie

Hi Denzie, My wife and I are thinking we will attend, but isn't it on Thursday, April 26, not April 27?

I didn't go last year. What tables are there?

I need to write to someone - Lysa, Colleen, Laura????? - and say I am willing to help do whatever they need. I keep forgetting to do it. By now, they may have everyone they need.

Contact Lysa or Deana. The table is for checking in. You can go to the Eventbrite page as well to volunteer.

Oh, thanks! Eventbrite would probably be easiest.

Love this picture! I'm scheduled for scans and consultation on the 27th and have a query out about rescheduling. If I can get my appointment rescheduled, I believe I'l be able to be there. Given my medical adventures of the past few months, it may be important to keep to the schedule. I'll let you know when I know!

By the way, the 26th is Robert's 70th birthday. Some way to celebrate - either dragging him along to scans or to the Rally. At least if it's the latter, he'll be able to celebrate with our daughter.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Robert and you will be together side by side whether it’s the scans or the Rally. The love you two share is palpable even now. Hopefully, I’ll get to give him a birthday hug.
