Farewell 2012

Not sure about you readers, but I'm excited to delve into 2013. I can't wait to see what God has in store for his children on the move. We move forward with newer and brighter experiences for Mae's Breath. We welcome our new relationships and our old. We are gracious for every big and small experience, and now we continue to grow and continue to make a stance for the new year coming.

My mother would be so proud that many people have stuck around for her memory. One effort that I would like to push here on this blog is a weekly review of updates lung cancer medicines, theories, and or news. 

Recently I heard of the passing of an influentual writer Lori Hope who shed light on her experience with lung cancer. I'm sadden by her recent death because it just stirs the thought that as we go on with coping with this disease - it's very real that anything can happen at anytime, while we cope.

I pray that this new year of all things is a HEALTHY year for us all. I wish you my readers the very best, and cheers to you and yours for a brighter and bigger new year.

Many blessings from Mae's Breath

Enough Blog Series 1 Outview 1

Donna Summers

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.

Side note-
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…..

MB News- April 21

I just wanted to let those of you who follow our site and blog of some news we have in store for the foundation. First let me say this has been a wonderful experience and my mom would have been  proud. We appreciate the volunteers, and audience who came out to show us love on March 3rd- Inhale Hope- Exhale the Stigma. It was absolutely informative .... and this is what we at Mae's Breath want to accomplish. We want to properly assist those with lung cancer diagnosis and proper education and care.

Lung cancer is not to be fooled with, the statistics are slim and time is of the essence!

This summer, we will debut our on-line support chat group, we hope you will stop by and join and or spread the word. We're also working to appear at some health fairs in 2012 in New York.
We are excited and want to do our part in spreading the word on lung cancer awareness.

Well that's it for now, but stay tuned for some more news and insights.

Joe Paterno-Correction Again

It was confirmed Joe Paterno died Saturday 1/21- then the public was advised that was an error due to poor journalism. Just as we corrected our post with correction, it was confirmed that Sunday afternoon that he indeed passed away on Sunday.

Lung  cancer doesn't matter if you're well known, Black or White, young or old, smoker or non-smoker-
when it hails it hails hard. It makes one think how serious a cough should be taken as this diseaese is #1 in taking lives. How serious is it when breathing is compromised?

Just the question is absurd considering to breathe is to life, just as water and food....

We want to stop announcements alerting the public of deaths from lung cancer,
it's time to bring awareness to lung cancer to the forefront.

Let's Stand-Up and Bring Awareness Together
