Chip Interviewed by The Hill

1 Nov

In anticipation of tomorrow’s Breathe Deep DC walk, organized by LUNGevity, Chip recently was interviewed by The Hill: Former Senate staffer and lung cancer survivor laces up for 5k race.

An excerpt:

He may not be making a mad dash during the LUNGevity Foundation’s Breathe Deep DC 5K in Washington this weekend, but to former Senate staffer Chip Kennett, the fact that he’s lacing up at all is a reason to celebrate.

“I’m not back to running yet but I hope to get there and I’ll be able walk this 5K hopefully without any issues except maybe some chilly weather, that’s about it,” he says with a laugh. …

And the dad to four-year-old Joe, and daughter Crosby, who turns two next month, is urging supporters to join him on Sunday morning at the Washington Monument to help “bring more awareness to this disease.”

“It’s not just a smoker’s disease,” Kennett says, “It’s the deadliest form of cancer and it’s going to remain that way until we can increase awareness and funding to combat it. And we’re making great strides so we just need to continue that fight.”
