Did you know lung cancer kills 160,000 people annually?  With a number like that I bet you or someone you loved has been affected by this disease.

Today March 27,2010 the 2nd Annual Free to Breathe 5k Run 1 mile walk was held in Lake Charles, LA.  This year the event is in honor of Mary and Ed Thompson.  Mary and Ed Thompson were both prominant Lake Charles citizens and active in the Lake Charles community for years.  Mary and Ed both passed away from lung cancer within 18 months of each other. Mary & Ed Thompson







Mary Thompson was a fellow real estate agent with Century 21 Mike D. Bono & Co.'s.  There are many funny stories and adventures with Mary that agents fondly share. You might say Mary was a legend in the Century 21 Bono office.


In general  real estate agents are very competitive within each office. Mary started a tradition in my office of "listing queen".  The "top listing" female agent received Mary's tiaratiara and got to keep the tiara for a month reign. The tiara was and is highly sought after.  Mary's tiara lives on within the office today and someday it will be mine for a month when I am crowned the listing queen!



My Century 21 office is also filled with American Idol fans. american idol We live for the new season where we can follow the contestants and discuss the performances around the coffeepot the next morning.  Mary was also a BIG American Idol fan!  So much so that her son, Eric, who is an attorney for FOX was able to get her on the Idol set where she was proudly photographed! 


Mary fought a courageous battle with lung cancer. Nothing kept her down for long.  She was a devoted real estate agent who kept going strong as long as she was physically able to do so.

This morning you could find me along with others in Lake Charles, walking in honor of Mary and Ed Thompson.  Mary's tiara had to stay at the office! Free to Breathe Lung Cancer Event
