I LOVE LOVE LOVE this organization. Thank God for the voice they provide for lung cancer patients and their families...and for those for whom we have lost. After losing my wonderful, beautiful Mom to lung cancer after a courageous 7-year battle, I found LCA and am so grateful for what they do. Thank you to all those who work tirelessly at LCA and who are making it possible to increase the survival odds of this terrible disease.

I have been involved with Lung Cancer Alliance for the past five years. They are the voice for those who have lost their battle to lung cancer and those still fighting. I found the LCA after I was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2004. LCA is strong when you are weak and caring when you need an ear to listen. They fight everyday to change the numbers of our family and friends who have or may have to face lung cancer during their lifetime.

My Mom has been fighting Lung Cancer for almost 3 years now and because she is my mom, sister and best friend rolled into one it has been very difficult for me. LCA always keeps me informed as a member what is going on in the US concerning the fight against lung cancer and I also feel encouraged by reading stories from other members and stories posted by the LCA myself. I have gotten quite a few people to join as well because I feel so strongly about this organization. They are helping so many people fighting this awful, awful disease and also helping the families as well.

The Great!

I learned about the LCA after my mother's death from lung cancer. Their support and encouragement immediately after my mother's death and now, two years later, has been unwavering. The LCA has placed a face next to the words: "lung cancer." Through its advocacy work and education, the LCA continues to fight for research funding and is a strong voice against the stigma associated with this disease. I have volunteered for the LCA by doing some translation work and by helping declare November as "Lung Cancer Awareness Month" in two states. The LCA also stays abreast of new legislation and makes this information available to the public. I know that many people benefit from the work done by the LCA. I am sure my mother would be proud.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the increased awareness that legislators now have about lung cancer and the need for more research funding.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more educational materials to targeted populations in various languagues, create a documentary about the extraordinary lives of people who have fought this disease, and provide funding for research, research and more research.

My experience with Lung Cancer Alliance has been so positive. I lost my sister to Lung Cancer five years ago. I contacted them and they were so informative, encouraging and warm. The staff is dedicated to do whatever possible to prevent our family and friends and future generations from deadly outcomes from this horrible disease. The staff and volunteers leave no stone unturned.

Besides lobbying for increased research and attention to lung cancer, LCA makes a point of confronting the terrible stigma attached to lung cancer (given its association with smoking in the mind of most people. Of course, not even smokers "deserve" lung cancer, but plenty of non-smokers, such as my sister who died of lung cancer in August 2008 and who never smoked, suffer not just the illness itself but also the attached stigma. This reminds me very much of the early days of AIDS when this terrible sense of guilt and debate over "innocent" victims as opposed to those who were thought somehow to be "deserving" of their illness. LCA is a powerful voice against this kind of ignorance.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the positive response I get when I send their e-mail links to friends and family around the country.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

probably call for certain forms of civil disobedience similar to actions taken during the AIDS crisis by groups such as ACT UP.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the steady flow of information that I know is accurate.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

always polite, informed, and never preaching.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

move the national conversation on cancer of all kinds front and center, working for a cure.

Ways to make it better...

my sister had lived to speak on behalf of lung cancer survivors the way LCA does.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

fighting the stigmas still attached to lung cancer and persuading the government to fully fund lung cancer research.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish this organization did not have to exist.
