Review for Lung Cancer Alliance, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

My wife, Sheila, passed away in September 2009 and the Lung Cancer Alliance was instrumental in providing an outlet for me to channel my need to "do something." So I turned my attention to raising money to assist in their mission - awareness building, and legislative advocacy. The level of care for lung cancer patients needs to be on parity with the other cancers (breast, prostate, colon) that get far more funding, even though their death rates are far less than lung cancer patients.

Role:  Donor & I recently went to Washington DC with over 75 other advocates from 27 States on behalf of the LCA to lobby Congress and the Senate to support the Lung Cancer Mortality Reduction Act.
