The Latest from LUNGevity

Things are really buzzing at LUNGevity’s office on LaSalle Street in Chicago’s beautiful River North district! With the merger of LUNGevity and Protect Your Lungs, our team is even stronger! Our staff, the same folks who serve LUNGevity Foundation prior to the merger, remains intact, with even better resources at our disposal with which to service our constituents. We will stay in Suite 310 at 435 North LaSalle Street, a historic Chicago building designed by Louis Sullivan and Dagmar Adler, two of our most illustrious architects.

This year, our staff will support more than three dozen events across the country, events that will attract tens of thousands of constituents and raise millions of dollars. In addition, our staff administers our other fundraising activities, such as our tribute funds (contribution in honor or memory of someone), our workplace giving initiative, and our corporate grants.

Thanks to your support, we are super busy growing the foundation! We are thrilled with the merger, delighted to stay intact as a team, and looking forward to a bright and hopeful future in which we cure lung cancer together.

Here is our staff roster:

Andrea Stern Ferris, President

Beth Ida Stern, Executive Director

Barb Netter, Director of Operations

Mandy Holcomb, Events Manager & Development Associate
