Event History 

Breathe Deep Newark was created in memory of Jean Mellars, mother of seven, who discovered she had lung cancer too late to do anything about it.  One of her daughters became involved with LUNGevity Foundation in Chicago and, with the help of her father and other family members, brought the event to Newark not only to honor her mother's memory, but also to raise awareness in the hope that others impacted by lung cancer (1 in 14 Americans!) have a better understanding of the facts, and to raise funds for research and early detection techniques.  Your support can help make a difference.  Please consider one of the many ways you can get involved ...
