Mission: We bring experience, commitment and a rigorous, balanced approach to the problems that keep lung cancer at the top of the list of killers. When it comes to eradicating lung cancer, the Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation expects to make a difference in our lifetime. We are tireless in our efforts to further understand each new scientific breakthrough and end lung cancer. We make it a point to speak with researchers almost every day. We challenge them to make the necessary leaps to move from the lab into the patient’s hospital rooms and their bedsides. Because we believe “smokers are people too,” we don’t practice “blame” in our efforts to fight cancer. There are currently researchers working across the country to find a cure for lung cancer, and all cancers. We’re here to move those studies beyond mice to humans and we know their work gives us and our families, and thousands of people more real hope. We promise to lead the crusade for research and pour our energies into making early detection and screening accessible to all and making funding and education available to keep people healthy and alive despite lung cancer.
