About Project Breathing Hope

Helping to Rewrite the Future of Lung Cancer

Project Breathing Hope

Every year, around 155,000 Americans die of lung cancer. It doesn’t have to be that way.


Ideally, a world without lung cancer. In the shorter term, we envision dramatic improvement in lung cancer patients’ survivorship and quality of life through the funding of innovative science. The Project Breathing Hope ultimately envisions long term chronic management and eventual curing of the disease.


Project Breathing Hope is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving lung cancer outcomes by advancing research, education, early screening and treatment. Project Breathing Hope was founded in November 2018 by anesthesiologist Jennifer Cipriani, M.D. and her husband Matthew Cipriani. Jennifer has metastatic EGFR-sensitizing non-small cell lung adenocarcinoma.
