Minoti’s dad, age 52, passed away from Lung Cancer in July. After his diagnosis, he succumbed to his illness in a short seven months, despite chemotherapy and participation in a clinical trial at a top research facility. Lung Cancer can happen to anyone. It is the number one cancer killer and 80% of newly diagnosed patients are, like Minoti’s dad, non-smokers; 19 people are diagnosed every hour and another 19 die from Lung Cancer every hour. “In honor of my dad, I set out to raise $5,000 and to build awareness about the disease by selling LCF bracelets,” said Minoti. “My dad will never be able to walk his daughters down the aisle, travel the world with his wife in old age or see his younger daughter move to college. I hope that others will help me in the fight to find a cure.”

“Please help me in my fight to find a cure and to make sure that what happened to my father doesn’t happen to anyone else. My family and I truly appreciate your support.” – Minoti Mehta
