Saw this item in a Roch blog yesterday and thought it was worth some praise.

he LUNGevity Foundation has named the Orioles the April LUNGevity Hero for their active participation and support in the quest to end lung cancer. The Orioles' longstanding commitment began as a tribute to their former public relations director and LUNGevity advocate, Monica Barlow, who died from lung cancer in 2014 at the age of 36. The Orioles turned their grief into action, raising awareness and vital research funds for the disease.

Their efforts encouraged Major League Baseball to select LUNGevity as the beneficiary of their 2014 Winter Meetings Auction, which raised more than $176,000.
