Meet Our Coordinators and Their Inspiration

We became involved with Breathe Deep Nashville because we have a personal connection to lung cancer. Monica's dad fought against it for 1½ years before losing his battle 3 years ago. To say the least, it was a terrible experience for all involved, but we made the most of the time we were given with him. Doctors gave him much less time, but by what we consider to be divine intervention, he overcame many life-threatening hurdles along the way. He was a fantastic man, who fought a valiant fight. His battle with this terrible disease lit a spark in us to make a difference so his fight was not in vain. We want to help provide support to lung cancer patients, raise awareness about lung cancer, and fund early detection. So many other cancer foundations have a huge following, and thus a large amount of research and other resource funds. Lung cancer doesn't. With LUNGevity, we are trying to change that and some day find a cure. Monica & Scott Addington

I lost my mother to lung cancer in July of 2010 after a long 5-year battle. Her amazing spirit and dedication to raising lung cancer awareness during her battle have inspired me to carry that mission forward in her honor. I participated in the Breathe Deep 5K in 2012 and am honored to be on the organizing committee again this year and hopefully for many years to come! My children were never able to meet their Nanny Leigh, but her spirit lives in them and I will always be grateful for her presence in all of our lives. Ryan Gardenhire

Rebecca McClure is one of our volunteer coordinators and also the captain of the Keene Team, but the star of the team is her mom. Rebecca has a passion for a cause close to her heart: lung cancer research. Her mom is battling lung cancer, and Rebecca's goal is to raise awareness and research funding for the disease.

I got involved with LUNGevity after my mom got her terminal diagnosis of lung cancer. My mom, Laura, battled lung cancer for 3 years and passed away December 1, 2012. Losing my mom was the hardest thing I had to deal with and now my goal in life is to help bring awareness and help put a stop to lung cancer. My mom was a fighter and I will continue to fight for her and keep her legacy alive. This will be my 3rd year running the 5k and now I am very excited to be working with LUNGevity! Together, we can make a difference. - Angel Hanner
