Lung Cancer Alliance
July 10, 2009
What else can be said about a group that in a few short years has put a face on lung cancer all across the country. Opened the ndoors to the U.S. Congress and Senate to have the 1st ever bill passed for lung cancer research in the amount of $20 million. They have taken to task groups, and government agencies to insure they do the right thing for lung cancer. A major driving force for early detection. It does saves lives. LCA has been very responsible in making people understand that lung cancer is not a smokers disease and it is not anybodies fault why they have lung cancer. Just ask the very large group who never smoked in their life nor did anybody in their families.
I have stage 4 lung cancer. LCA has so many programs that I was able to take advantage of and are available at no charge to everybody. LCA plays a very big part in helping me stay alive. I was told there is NO chance, go home and die, one of the 1st places that I turned to was LCA.Even though it is so hard to find people to get involved and help fight this terrible disease some do step up to the plate. I know. I decided I needed to get involved to help other as LCA has helped me. I was allowed to establish Lung Cancer Alliance Georgia.
There is no other group in the country that does what they do. I hope you appreciate and realize it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Washington DC and in states with chapters. In all cases it has gone from ignorance of lung cancer to creating amazing awareness through education. LCA has made lung cancer a very recocognized disease in a very short time.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
They care more than anybody could ever know. The executive treats all of their volunteers as equals. They listen to everybody. We feel important or as they say we are important. They are amazing
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
1st rate, These are people who CARE. They are dedicated to winning the fight on lung cancer.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Educate,train, create awareness nationally,open offices in all states. move their agenda up by years to beat the disease. It would be a dream come true.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I have helped people with no hope live because I now have knowledge and the contacts to get them in the right place.
