Lung Cancer Alliance
July 10, 2009
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.
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.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
