Breathe BioMedical is a proud supporter of The White Ribbon Project

The White Ribbon Project promotes lung cancer awareness and focuses on removing the stigma surrounding this deadly disease. This project is raising awareness that anyone with lungs can get lung cancer.

The White Ribbon Project Event

Last November Breathe BioMedical hosted a White Ribbon Event for Lung Cancer Awareness Month. At this event community members received ribbons for their contributions to the lung cancer space. As part of the event, attendees heard from three lung cancer survivors and advocates: Dave Bjork, Jill Hammer-Wilson and Heather Hogan. White ribbon recipients were able to speak and share their experiences with lung cancer and their goals for the future.
