Lung Health Center Dedication Open House POSTPONED Until Further Notice!

Lung Health Center Dedication Open House POSTPONED Until Further Notice!

As much as we looked forward to opening our doors and sharing our wonderful new Danni Palmore Lung Health Center to the community, the latest surge of the COVID-19 pandemic has obligated us to postpone our public Open House on September 21st.

We long to share with you the celebration of the retirement of our faithful CEO, Joanne Spoth, as well as the welcoming in our new CEO, Lori Sontag, but need to do so when it is safe for all to attend and not be compromised.  As a healthcare organization, it is our responsibility to act as a leader and help put a stop to the spread of the virus.

We look forward to the day when we can celebrate with our community of donors, volunteers and supporters in the near future.

Commit To Quit – 31 May is World No Tobacco Day

This yearly celebration informs the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, what the World Health Organization (WHO) is doing to fight the tobacco epidemic, and what people around the world can do to claim their right to health and healthy living and to protect future generations.

The Member States of the World Health Organization created World No Tobacco Day in 1987 to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic and the preventable death and disease it causes — a cause The Breathing Association strongly stands behind. In 1987, the World Health Assembly passed Resolution WHA40.38, calling for 7 April 1988 to be a “a world no-smoking day.” In 1988, Resolution WHA42.19 was passed, calling for the celebration of World No Tobacco Day, every year on 31 May.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to millions of tobacco users saying they want to quit. Commit to quit today and sign the pledge.

Pledge to quitting today by clicking the link below.

I commit to quit!

A Celebration of Life Service will be streamed online to allow family and friends to honor Danni together at a distance.

Colette Harrell as “Mother Sweat” and Danni – the real sage.

I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to her daughter, son, grandchildren and other family members and friends. My prayers are with you. I will miss Danni more than words can express. She was an intentional thinker full of wisdom and integrity. I found her to be fun, energetic and present in every moment. I valued her and was blessed to stand in her light.
