I know I never do guest posts, but this is an exception I’m happy to make. My friend Jennifer Windrum, the author of this post, is an incredible person and I’m honored to be able to help her spread the word about her efforts to raise awareness about lung cancer, even as her mother fights for her life battling it. Please take a minute to read her incredible story and, if you feel so moved. to donate and/or share this post.

The Big Why
|Mom snoozing with NoMo & Phoenix.|
Cancer can be a very lonely existence. Family and friends can’t always be there. My Mom lives more than 1,200 miles away, making her appointments, tests, scan results and treatments that much harder for both of us.
-Leslie Lehrman (Mom)
With YOUR help, SMAC! Nation will be built with great philanthropic purpose, with giving at the heart of it all.
