Lung Cancer Alliance
February 13, 2011
I discovered LCA when someone who was like a Mother to me was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. Lung Cancer Alliance was there to provide information and support. Though Merrillyn Stevens lost her battle with the disease only 10 months after her diagnosis, Lung Cancer Alliance carries on the fight for all. I have personally met and spoken with several members of their staff, and many of their advocates. This is a top-notch organization completely dedicated to reversing decades of stigma and supporting those currently struggling with lung cancer. I respect members of the staff so much for what they've accomplished in such a short amount of time with the limited resources they have. They are so knowledgeable and professional, and sooooo caring. With LCA on our side, I know that someday we will win the fight against this deadly disease.

The Lung Cancer Alliance has helped many people I know, including my best friend who lost her mother to Lung Cancer. They are on top of what's going on legislatively and in the medical community. They initiated the Shine a Light on Lung Cancer program, and now it's nationwide. We held a vigil in the Orlando area in November 2010 and will hold one again in 2011. Their support is amazing. They are making a difference.

Give them tons of money so they can further the cause. They are responsible, educated, and honest, and they are doing GREAT THINGS!!
