Living For Every Breath

The Living for Liz organization has accomplished a lot since its inception in 2012.   We’ve donated over $65,000 to lung cancer research, awareness and patient assistance programs.  We’ve partnered with Gundersen and Mayo Health Systems in lung cancer initiatives.  We’ve also co- sponsored the La Crosse area “Shine A Light on Lung Cancer” and have hosted three of our own fundraisers per year.  Yet our greatest success lies in our ability to fuel the movement. We are proud to be a part of the growing number of organizations going against the grain to bring light to a disease that has been overlooked for far too long; organizations that are boldly speaking out to stop the stigma associated with lung cancer.  We fight to bring equal awareness, education and funding to this disease, every day.  This movement, the fight to be heard, is our greatest and on-going achievement.
