I was shocked last week when I heard the Queen of disco Donna Sommers died at the age of 63….
Supposedly of lung cancer!
63…a year younger than my mom a year and 7 months ago. When I got home
that evening I dozed off to awaken from channel 7 news speaking of the Queen and
Her death may have been due to lung cancer. I shivered when I heard the last part –Lung cancer.
The following day on the radio they spoke of how she felt her illness may have stemmed from the 9/11 twin towers catastrophe 12 years ago, as she lived close to the vicinity at that time. Quite honestly it wouldn’t be a surprise as so many people who lived, assisted, escaped on that day, have been diagnosed with some very uncommon illnesses years later.
Another reason why the plight of lung cancer is such a big deal; we have more and more people affected yet bringing awareness to lung cancer is barely being heard. We will continue to do our part at Mae’s Breath Foundation- little by little.
We want to think The Church Pension Group for allowing Richard Sarrabo to give a few words in representing Mae’s Breath.
To Breath Should not be Discriminatory
Cheers to another victim, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend…..
