"Anyone who does not believe in miracles is not a realist." - Audrey Hepburn

I call my mama, Ivica Milicevic, a Miracle Mama, for she has overcome a lot in life, always blessed by the grace of God. Even though we were shocked when we she was diagnosed with NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer) in early November 2018, especially since she is a young mama who never smoked and had a healthy lifestyle, our family has hope and a strong faith in God that He will hear our prayers.

We are quite new to this journey and still have a lot to learn, but I will be proudly walking/running for my mother and as well as all who are currently battling lung cancer. I hope to raise at least $3300 to help contribute to the funds needed for critical clinical research.

Thank you in advance to all those generous souls who will donate to this worthy and important cause.

God Bless!

PS Forgot to mention, please check to see if your company does matching donations! We already have $100 matched by Apple (which hasn't shown up in the total here). You'll read on the Donation page: "Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy enter the company name in the search box below."

Bonnie Addario, the living founder and 14 year survivor of lung cancer, has said that her wish is that 1 million people would donate just $20 towards lung cancer research. $20 million would go a long way in finding new treatments, especially since funding for lung cancer has been lacking due to its unfortunate stigma of being a "smoker's disease." In a similar vein, when I launched my own fundraising effort, I said that I would love for 100 people to donate $33. Due to the generosity of so many wonderful people, we have surpassed my initial goal of $3300. Thank you so much! And because of that, I have now increased my fundraising goal to $5000 (which means I'll get my own team tent, woohoo, all on my own ;) If anyone in the LA area wants to join me on Sunday, 2/10 in San Dimas, let me know!). Thank you again to all for donating to this very important cause, but more importantly, please make sure to educate your loved ones that "anyone with lungs can get lung cancer." Let's work together to eradicate the stigma and help increase awareness, funding, and research for lung cancer. Thank you!
