Merger between two orgs already on Guidestar

Hello! I am writing regarding a merger which took place on Sept. 30, 2017 between the Lung Cancer Research Foundation and Free to Breathe. The organization retained the Lung Cancer Research Foundation name and EIN. However, both organizations were listed on Guidestar with separate EINs. I have updated the former Free to Breathe profile with correct information about its leadership. I understand I'm unable to change the EIN as it is already in use on the Lung Cancer Research Foundation profile.


I contacted Guidestar last fall about the Free to Breathe listing. I was told that it would automatically be removed after it's been off the IRS database for six months. How long does that typically take in real time?


Thank you for your help.
