There's some special "alchemy" going on at the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation that starts with Bonnie and pervades her entire staff: 100+% positive, helpful, proactive, ALIVE! I have spent my personal and professional life in the non-profit sector. Of the organizations that I have encountered, BJALCF ranks at the top in terms of how it embraces people in need, provides life-saving information and personal help, and provides great hope in the face of having a life-threatening disease. As a volunteer and as the wife of someone with lung cancer, I know that the Foundation's research and advocacy work saves lives AND has provided me and my husband with a life-saving place to be. It is rich resource of information and of people with great heart. I often tell my friends that, "The Addario Foundation is doing for lung cancer what the Komen Foundation has done for breast cancer."
