Gary Brausen was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011. He never smoked a day in his life, and secondhand smoke wasn’t a factor in his case either.
Four years later and down to one lung, Brausen is cancer free. But even at 60 to 70 percent of his original lung capacity, he rode his bike from a MInneapolis suburb to Duluth to raise money for the Hope Foundation.
In 2011, the lifelong athlete who watches his diet was diagnosed with cancer in his left lung. The father of two boys was in denial.
Brausen and a group of 25 family and friends all rode their bikes on the 150 mile trek in support of Gary and lung cancer research.
