National Lung Cancer Partnership
October 24, 2012

I am actually a Board Member of the PA Lung Cancer Partnership which is a state chapter of the larger National LCP. We/they are raising money for research to lick lung cancer. Some of the money goes to research goals like find a cure, find a screening, build awareness and give people hope where there has not been much! They also educate advocates like me on how to make a difference!

NATIONAL LUNG CANCER PARTNERSHIP
May 24, 2011

I've been working as a volunteer for the PA Lung Cancer Partnership which is a terrific organization whose mission is to bring awareness, research and bring about change. When I "work" for an organization, I want to know that the money is not being spent on "administration", but on what their mission is.
They are by far the best organization out there when it comes to Lung Cancer. Check it out:

Ways to make it better...

My dad died of Lung Cancer a while ago... But when my friend Nancy was diagnosed, it was just "too much"! It was at this point I learned about The Partnership. They have it all together... With Nancy and some other advocate/volunteers, we started our own PA Lung Cancer Partnership here in PA. I am now a board member. We get support for our fund-raising, and we know all the money we raise goes to: Research. Awareness. Change. Everything you would want your money to go to. We feel like we are putting our money where our mouth is!! And National helps us do it! This IS THE organization for Lung Cancer- hitting all the points that will make the most difference!

The Great!

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

I've seen 6 or 7 people a year getting money to research Lung Cancer. I've seen the labs they work in. I've gone to "Summits" where we learn how to do things, such as, how to engage the media and talk to politicians to gain their support for publicity and funding.

Ways to make it better...

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

Not change one thing, except to make them richer!!

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Became an advocate. Planeed and participated in "Free to Breathe" -race to raise money/awareness and planned other events to raise awareness/money.

Review from CharityNavigator
National Lung Cancer Partnership
July 27, 2009

The National Lung Cancer Partnership is a group of leading doctors, researchers, patient advocates, and lung cancer survivors who are working together to improve treatments for lung cancer patients. They are dedicated to raising public awareness of the disease and generating funding for lung cancer research.

Ways to make it better...

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

Change nothing!

More feedback

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

Amazingly knowledgeable and dedicated!

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

Decrease deaths due to lung cancer, and help patients live longer and better, through research, awareness, and advocacy.

Ways to make it better...

NOTHING!

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

Funding for research and growth of the organization

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

NLCP's mission: * Raising awareness of the deadly impact of lung cancer on both women/men * Increasing funding for lung cancer research *Encouraging professionals to enter into and be successful in lung cancer research * Educating and empowering patients
