Statement from Bonnie J. Addario, Founder of BJALCF:
“This is a major milestone in the global fight against Lung Cancer. We are thrilled and honored to have Maroon 5 — the musical VOICE of a generation — lending its support, celebrity and international reach to help the world recognize that Anyone Can Get Lung Cancer. We all need to work together to change that, and it starts with supporting BJALCF.
The devastation of Lung Cancer can be stopped when people rise up, get involved, raise awareness and say ‘I can make a difference. I can save a life.’ We must continue to build on this momentum and ask that all TV stations, all writers, all celebrities, and all people who can possibly lend their voice to the end of the Lung Cancer join in this initiative. Thank you Maroon 5, Universal, Career Artist Management, and thank you, in advance, to the rest of you who will step up to the plate and make Lung Cancer Matter.”
