The American Lung Association of Florida's Inspire Life Breathe Free Luncheon took place Monday, May 17, 2010, at Bear Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach at 11:30 a.m. This year’s keynote speaker was Dr. Helene B. Leonetti, MD, author of “Hardwired For Love: Nurturing Yourself to Vibrant Health.

 The Inspire Life Breathe Free Award is given to a commercial entity and a private person each year to recognize their commitment to further the mission of the American Lung Association. This year’s honorees were event sponsor JFK Foundation in recognition of their decision to become a smoke-free campus this year. Past event chairwoman Dorothy Bradshaw was honored for her generosity and personal commitment to the organization’s mission.

 “My mother passed away due to complications from COPD.  I hope in some small way my support will allow American Lung Association to continue with the educational programs and research that will one day prevent or at least decrease the instances of COPD and other lung diseases,” said Bradshaw.

In addition to a lovely luncheon and lively silent auction, the guests  heard stories of
grace and courage from a lung cancer survivor who encouraged guests to become
their own lung health advocate. Attendees were invited to participate in a
‘remembrance’ ceremony during the luncheon, which was a profoundly poignant
reminder of friends and loved ones who struggle with or have been lost to lung disease. We We were also extremely grateful for the diligence of our Auction Chair,
Lou Ann Wilson-Swan
for her tireless efforts in putting together a fabulous raffle and
silent auction. Luncheon
guests also enjoyed taking home beautiful goody bags.

The American Lung Association of Florida was grateful for the generosity of event
sponsors: AT&T The Real Yellow Pages, JFK Medical Center Foundation, Kindred
Healthcare of South Florida, The Hanley Center, Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A.,
MacKenzie-Childs™ , Value Pawn, Kona Grill. The association offers special
thanks to Nick Tamposi and his family, for their generous support of women’s lung
cancer awareness campaign and supporting the Inspire Life Breathe Free Luncheon

Because lung cancer takes the lives of more women than breast, cervical, and
ovarian cancers combined, the organization believes that it is critical to further its
mission of education, fundraising and advocacy to combat those numbers and reach its
goal to find earlier and better diagnostics as well as a cure.

Now in its second century, the American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease. With your generous support, the American Lung Association is “Fighting for Air” through research, education and advocacy. For more information about the American Lung Association, holder of the Charity Navigator four-star rating and Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Guide Seal, or to support the work it does, call 1-800-LUNG-USA (1-800-586-4872) or visit .
