ABAFTC Foundation raises awareness and funds to eradicate lung cancer through research, screening, education, prevention and treatment. November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Honorary Co-Chair Mayor Gavin Newsom has proclaimed November 9th as Lung Cancer Awareness day.

Despite the myth, you CAN get lung cancer even if you never smoked. Lung cancer kills more people than any other type of cancer. Lung cancer claims more lives than breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer,melanoma, and kidney cancer combined. Consider this: 173,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer annually. Three per minute. 165,000 people died of lung cancer last year. 650,000 lives will be lost by 2010 if early detection does not become a national priority.

Founder Bonnie Addario is a two-and-a-half year lung cancer survivor. Through what she calls “serendipity and divine intervention” and the help of great doctors at CHW Sequoia Hospital and UCSF’s Thoracic Oncology Program headed up by Dr.David Jablons, she is one of the lucky few who has survived.“I live every singleminute of every single day thinking about how we can catch this disease early, so nobody, not anybody in my family, or any of my friends or anyone I haven’t yet met has to go through the pain and suffering that I did and may still. I will always have cancer. But I am one of the lucky ones,who beat the odds, for now,“ Addario said.

She began her Foundation on March 6, 2006, the very same day Dana Reeve, a nonsmoker, passed away. According to Bonnie,“Until now lung cancer has taken a back seat to every other deadly cancer. It is time for lung cancer to matter, too. Screening for lung cancer is available, but ignored.We are going to change that in every hospital across the country.”

Co-chair U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel, is being honored at the event for his groundbreaking work in achieving unanimous approval for Senate Resolution 408 calling on President Bush to declare lung cancer a national health priority. He will receive the “Luminosity Award.”Other honorees include CHW Sequoia Hospital’s Dr. Fred Marcus and UCSF’s Dr.Thierry Jahan, researcher Xidong Xu, and survivor Rebecca Broder among others. Last year’s Lungevity 2005 had a surprise guest: RobinWilliams opening the event with a video introduction.More surprise visitors are in store for this year’s attendees.

SIMPLY THE BEST fundraising dinner gala includes a cocktail reception with Double Funk Crunch, live auction, dinner program and entertainment by Shana Morrison and New Caledonia. Event Co-Chairs: U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel, Bonnie Addario, Dr. David Jablons and Julie Harkins.Honorary Co-Chairs:U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, Mayor Gavin Newsom and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.6 p.m. Thursday, November 9, 2006.
