Once again this year, Guiding Light‘s former Tammy Winslow, Stephanie Gatschet, will be joining other members of the cast to take part in the Free to Breathe 5 K race. The event is organized by The National Lung Cancer Partnership, a group of doctors, researchers, patient advocates, and lung cancer survivors working together for improvements in the treatments for the disease.

Stephanie had this to say about her involvement: “The Free to Breathe Walk is a very important cause to me, personally, as my mother is a survivor of small-cell lung cancer. Her battle with the disease was tough, and although she is free of cancer today, the battle for funding to research this horrible disease continues. Lung cancer is one of the deadliest cancers, and yet is one of the least funded in terms of research.”

The event will take place on November 2 in Philadelphia, PA. Anyone interested in more information on this event, is encouraged to visit Free to Breathe. If you would like to lend your support by giving a donation to Stephanie and Team Guiding Light, please visit their site.

Soaps.com sends our best wishes to everyone involved in this important charity event.
