What inspires you to breathe? This Lung Cancer Awareness Month, we’ve asked those living with and touched by this disease to share what encourages them and honor those who help them to keep breathing every day. From strong support networks to personalized care plans to being there for important life moments, we all have different sources of motivation. Share yours using #ImBreathingBecause today.

Larry's Story

Larry, who is living with lung cancer, shares his story and gives thanks to those who have inspired and supported him along the way.
I'm breathing because I want to see my family live their life to the fullest. I want to see my friends do well … and I want to be around as long as I can to be part of it.
