Lung cancer may not come to mind when you think of women’s cancers, but the disease takes the lives of more women each year than breast, ovarian and uterine cancer combined.

Champion the lung cancer cause by registering today for the second annual Free to Breathe Fort Wayne 5K Run/Walk and 1-Mile Memory Walk on September 8 at Shoaff Park.
The inspirational event will bring the community together to raise funds that will fuel groundbreaking research necessary for making the dramatic breakthroughs in early detection and treatment of lung cancer that can save lives.
