Dear Family & Friends,
Last year I chose to raise money for Lung Cancer research as my Mitzvah Project because it was very important to our family, particularly, my Uncle Jeff, Aunt Robin, and Cousin Kenny. My Uncle Jeff (“Lebo”) bravely fought Stage 4 Lung cancer as hard as he could for over two years. Unfortunately, Uncle Jeff passed away only one day before my bar mitzvah, and never had the opportunity to share that special day with our family. I was fortunate enough to see him the day he passed and shared a moment with him that I will never forget! He was very weak but managed to find the strength to reach his hand to mine and give me a fist pump and told me that the “show must go on”! I knew at that time that I was going to continue this Quest for A Cure in Uncle Jeff’s memory and for the other families who are living every day to find that miracle.
I hope that you will join us this year as we walk/run in honor of my uncle, Jeff Lebowitz. Supporting foundations such as the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation is vital in the ongoing battle to find a cure. The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF”). is one of the largest philanthropies devoted exclusively to eradicating Lung Cancer through research, early detection, education, and treatment.
My goal is simple: to make a positive impact on patient lives and support lung cancer research. And on September 17th, we will honor my uncle Jeff – “Lebo”. I hope you will join us!
