Date:3/9/2009

Representing the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation's New Generation of Crusaders, James Lichtenthal Traveled to New York City on March 5, 2009 for the American Cancer Society's Awareness Day

SAN FRANSISCO, March 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Last Thursday, three years almost to the date of his aunt Dana Reeve's untimely death from Lung Cancer, James Lichtenthal, 18, boarded a 5:30 a.m. plane to New York City from Boston, carrying with him expectations of hope and change to more than 200 high school students and guests gathered at a rally to raise awareness for all cancers held at Fiorello LaGuardia High School.

The Weston, MA, high school senior was on a mission. Carrying the Foundation's t-shirts, thermals and buttons with the message to stomp out Lung Cancer, he arrived at the performing arts high school near Lincoln Center, and quickly set up his booth. Within seconds, it was swarmed by more than 200 high school students - who quickly donned the attire and adorned themselves with the buttons: "What kills more women than breast cancer? Lung Cancer!" and "Lung Cancer/Breast Cancer: Girls Just Wanna Have None."

An honorary board member for the Foundation, (his mother, Deborah Morosini, MD, Dana Reeve's sister, is on the executive board), James eagerly raised his hand to represent the Foundation at this all-day cancer awareness event sponsored by the American Cancer Society. BJALCF was invited to participate in this event because the American Cancer Society's representative, Myrna E. Duarte, saw the outdoor ad campaign at the station in Times Square. "It would be wonderful to have the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation represented at our event," said Myrna.
