Mission: We bring experience, commitment and a rigorous, balanced approach to the problems that keep lung cancer at the top of the list of killers. When it comes to eradicating lung cancer, the Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation expects to make a difference in our lifetime. We are tireless in our efforts to further understand each new scientific breakthrough and end lung cancer. We make it a point to speak with researchers almost every day. We challenge them to make the necessary leaps to move from the lab into the patient’s hospital rooms and their bedsides. Because we believe “smokers are people too,” we don’t practice “blame” in our efforts to fight cancer. There are currently researchers working across the country to find a cure for lung cancer, and all cancers. We’re here to move those studies beyond mice to humans and we know their work gives us and our families, and thousands of people more real hope. We promise to lead the crusade for research and pour our energies into making early detection and screening accessible to all and making funding and education available to keep people healthy and alive despite lung cancer.

I'm a survivor of Lung Cancer (almost 6 years) and the Foundation has been an enourmous resource for information and personal support. The dedication and passion proven by Bonnie Addario and everyone involved is unlike any other I've experienced. I'm proud to be a part of their fundraising walks in Texas and have been the top individual fundraiser for the past 3 years.

Unlike some other non-profit Orgs, I see actual results from my efforts. I truly feel, in a world where Lung Cancer is stigmatized and neglected by adequate research funds, that BJALCF is the change we so urgently need.

My wife was diagnosed with lung cancer over a year ago. As we progressed from one piece of bad news to the next, we also were fortunate enough to learn about the Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. The support, education and renewed faith they have given us has been precious beyond words. And the research work they are championing gives us faith that there may someday be a cure for this nasty disease. Bonnie and her staff have been beyond belief in the guidance, support and friendship they have given us. We don't know where we'd be without them and are giving them all of the support we can in return!

As a healthy, non-smoking 28 year old diagnosed with lung cancer, I was in shock. We were referred to the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, and they have been a beacon of hope in this entire process. They are hands-on, accessible, and above all extremely knowledgeable in the world of lung cancer. As I like to say, no one should have to go through lung cancer, but if we have to, thank goodness organizations like BJALCF exist to guide us through. Thank you BJALCF!
