About Breath of Hope Ohio

The “Breath of Hope Ohio” Gala was started by Sandy and Mark Lomeo after Mark was diagnosed with lung cancer in April 2014. They were surprised to discover the lack of funding for lung cancer as compared to many other types of cancer. They decided to raise money by having a dinner gala. They formed a steering committee (created by Annie Cacciato) to advance their cause. Fundraising efforts from the event support “Blue Beautiful Skies” Fund to directly benefit the Thoracic Oncology Department at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) for awareness, research, new treatments and hopefully a cure. 

Presently, lung cancer has a dismal survival rate. It kills more people per year than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. In fact, lung cancer kills twice as many women as breast cancer. Given the poor survival rates of lung cancer, your help is needed. Please, support “Breath of Hope” and its mission by either attending the upcoming event or by making a donation that is meaningful to you. 

Everyone Deserves a Breath of Hope.

Our mission is to bring hope to the men and women diagnosed with lung cancer every day and raise funds to support the innovative research necessary for a cure. Check out our website to learn more.

Join us in funding innovative research and programs that will save lives. Your donation will directly fund ground-breaking basic and translational lung cancer research (including clinical trials), research training, early detection and lung cancer prevention led by internationally renowned lung cancer expert and cancer survivor, Dr. David Carbone at The James Thoracic Oncology Center. Please consider making a donation of any amount that is meaningful to you. Each gift will help change lives and bring The James closer to conquering lung cancer.
