The Lewins’ passion for the American Lung Association’s mission is driven by their connection to lung disease. Eliza and Kathryn, Peter and Elizabeth’s daughter and niece, live with Asthma. Elizabeth’s uncle, Thomas Monnone, dear friend, Jennifer, lost their lives to lung cancer. Currently, Violet Pappas, a friend of the Peter and Elizabeth, is fighting lung cancer.
“We believe in the great work of the American Lung Association and impact it has on the First Coast. Since we have seen the effects of lung disease on our own family and friends, we have committed our time and resources to the American Lung Association and our community. At this time, 60,000 people live with Asthma and 222,000 fight lung cancer in the First Coast. Elizabeth and I support all educational programs, research and advocacy dedicated to the fight against lung disease which include Asthma, Lung Cancer and COPD. We welcome your support to fight all lung disease which affects our community. With your generous support, we can send children to Asthma camp and support funding for local research conducted in Northeast Florida.” – Peter Lewin
