The Orioles will host LUNGevity Foundation's Breathe Deep Baltimore on Saturday, September 16, a walk to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer in memory of Orioles' late Public Relations Director, Monica Pence Barlow. All proceeds of the walk will benefit LUNGevity Foundation, a non-profit firmly committed to making an immediate impact on increasing quality-of-life and survivorship of people with lung cancer by accelerating research into early detection and more effective treatments, as well as providing community, support and education for all those affected by the disease.
Monica Pence Barlow was the Orioles Public Relations Director and a member of the organization for 14 years. Barlow passed away in 2014 after a four and a half year battle with non-small cell lung cancer. Barlow was very active with LUNGevity Foundation, raising funds and awareness through interviews and walks
