We are hosting our second annual balloon-a-thon to support our Beat Lung Cancer campaign! Please consider donating $10/balloon in honor or in celebration of someone who has beat lung cancer. Each balloon will represent a lung cancer patient who has inspired others with their courage.

Donations of $100 or more may choose to receive a copy of Tall Ship Odysseys: Fifty Years of Operation Sail by David Taylor, which is a large, beautiful hardcover book that has been generously donated to the Forum.

The reception will take place on June 23rd, 2012 at 12 pm in the Peter Bent Brigham Rotunda, located at the 15 Francis St. entrance of Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The participant with the most donations raised will receive a prize!

For donations by check, please click here for the order form. Secure online donations are possible through the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Development Office by following the “Make a Donation” link to the right.

The first annual balloon-a-thon collected 1000 balloons, and as a result sponsored “Out of the Shadows,” an educational conference with over 60 attendees; a DVD entitled “Living Well Beyond Lung Cancer” for patients; and a Pillow Initiative, which provides women who have undergone surgery for lung cancer with a cough pillow and inspiring stories from members of our Forum. This year, our goal is to raise 1500 balloons.

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration and generosity. Together we can beat lung cancer!
