Lungevity: HOPE

Hope band open_small file_img_6783.jpg

HOPE Storyband

Heroic, Optimistic, Passionate and Empowered. These descriptors - among many others - are the weapons of those who fight cancer and support others in their fight. We created this band to help raise money for LUNGevity, the nation's leading lung cancer-focused nonprofit after a close friend of ours was diagnosed with lung cancer. Lungevity changes outcomes for people with lung cancer through research, education, and support. 30% of the proceeds from each band goes to the ALK+ research fund.
