This event is in honor and memory of Gary Schmidt, who passed away of lung cancer November 9, 2012. Gary Schmidt was the best kind of man. He loved his family deeply. He lived his life passionately. He impacted his colleagues with his work ethic and integrity. He was devoted, courageous and full of a spirit that will never be replaced. We miss him, and we lost him too soon. This event is for him. It’s for anyone who’s had lung cancer, or has lung cancer. It’s for the family members who’ve lost someone, or are currently caring for someone who’s sick. It’s for hope. It’s for a future where lives are not lost because of lung cancer.
