Lung Cancer Alliance
July 11, 2009

When my mom was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer, I searched the web to find any information about it that I could. My resources were limited. After approaching Lunc Cancer Allinace for information, they sent me packets and booklets and books to read. To me it was comforting to know there were daughters, sons, husbands, wifes, sisters and brothers like me...facing what I was facing. The informatio they sent me was not good news. The average life span of a patient fighting non-small cell lung cancer is 13 months. My mom lived 13 months after diagnosis. Lung cancer must be put in the forfront of the mind. My mom never smoked and because of the stigmatism associated with lung cancer, her as well as countless other lives are lost. And just because someone smoked doesn't mean they deserve a death sentance. The funds to aid in survival need to increase and patients need to be given a fair fight! Heather Delaney

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

supporting me and my family while battleing lung cancer.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do every thing I could to raise funds and awerness of this horrible disease. They are doing a great job against all their odds!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

just the support they made available to me and my family during our battle.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it would only be a drop in the bucket, but might be able to build more awerness in the puublic and local communitities.

Ways to make it better...

there where more places in the Seattle area where my services can be used.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the stigmatism associated with smoking and the lack of funding and research beacuse of the stigmatism.

One thing I'd also say is that...

LCA needs all the press and people talking about it to bring this matter to the forfront. It helped in my time of need and could do so much more with the public knowing more about them and the disease.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
