I've volunteered and attended numerous events for Lazarex because I truly believe in what they do. They are such a unique foundation in that they guide their patients through the process from Step 1. You are not just a number when you call, they know all their clients (and their families) personally. It's such a comfort to know you have such a strong support system in the cancer fight. I will continue to be an advocate for Lazarex - it is a one of a kind organization run by one of a kind people!
When I learned about Lazarex, I was immediately drawn to the organization because of their background and story. Their tenacity and passion for giving not only treatment, but hope to their patients is one of the most important things their organization does. The whole team at Lazarex is full of warmth and love. Lazarex is an invaluable organization that gives so much to those who need support in their time of need.

Thank you for sharing our passion with others. A big thank you for writing a review!!
I have a friend who has been helped by Lazarex for many years and would probably NOT be
alive without their research and help with medicine. She raves about the professionalism
of this organization and is a spokesperson for them because of all they have done for her.
She tells me many stories of the people they have helped and are helping. I have donated
to Lazarex because I believe in what they do and how they do it.
This nonprofit is a genuine group of people who truly care about those they serve.
Lazarex is a great organization doing critical work, often with formerly-hopeless cancer patients. The group is well-run from the top down. Heaven forbid, if I or any of my family is ever in a situation where we need this sort of care, we will be very thankful that such as wonderful organization as Lazarex exists.

You have saved, and continue to save the lives of so many cancer patients...including my friend Christy. For that, I am forever grateful.
Lazarex Cancer Foundation is,an amazing resource for patients fighting cancer!
My husband and I have attended a number of Lazarex Galas the past five years. We have had the great honor and pleasure of dining with and getting to know some of their wonderful patients who have received and who are receiving Lazarex services. Their stories are incredibly touching and inspiring, and each patient and their families are genuinely grateful for the hope, love, respect, support, and financial assistance they have received from Lazarex. Each of them saying that they do not know where they would be with out the help and assistance from Lazarex. During this time we have also gotten to know the founder Dana Dornsife and her support staff/volunteers and we can't say enough about the dedication they have for their cause, the remarkable work they do, and the extraordinary love they have for their patients and their families.
Review from Guidestar
Lazarex is the best nonprofit charity in the world! I have never seen such an organization that is so passionate about helping people through the life with cancer as I have seen with the Lazarex organization. They fulfill their mission everyday and bring years of life to so many people and hope to families who otherwise have no hope. Please look into Lazarex as you will be impressed by their love and help to those who have nobody else in the world!
Can't say enough great things about this organization! We are in the event industry and working with Lazarex and seeing all that they do is very rewarding and it really makes it a joy to be involved with them.
Review from Guidestar
The president and founder of Lazarex is my daughter and I could not be prouder of her and her dedicated staff for the services they provide their cancer clients and the the role they fill in assisting clients to find clinical trials. Lazarex is a unique Non Profit because of the aforementioned mission and it is a shame that it is not more widely known. and funded.
The seeds for LAzarex were sown via our families effort to assist our son-in-law, Mike Miller, in his fight with pancreatic cancer. New medications were researched as were clinical trials to determine what was the best course of action for Mike. The plan that evolved did include both new medication and a clinical trial. Although Mike ultimately passed away the quality of his life was significantly improved and extended by one year through the program that evolved. This entire effort set the stage for Lazarex to be born as a non-profit company with exactly the same goals of financial assistance when needed, new medication research along with new clincal triials. Lazarex does bring"hope" to its clients and has grown to the point where it is assisting more and more clients to lead a better life. Your donation and /or becoming a volunteer will significantly helpLazarex in this effort.
I live in SF and have been going to LA for my cancer treatments for over two years. I was required to fly and/or drive there three times a month, then once every three weeks. Transportation and lodging costs have accumulated tremendously. I am very thankful for the financial support from Lazarex Cancer Foundation. Their staff is very friendly and helpful, making me feel at ease with one less thing to worry about during my journey.
Lazarex is a great resource for people who cannot afford clinical trials. Lazarex takes care of the expenses for patients. They give every patient a fair chance of getting treated and living. I am grateful for all the work and help they give to patients.
I've volunteered and worked for many non-profits, and Lazarex is by far the best of the best! The staff, the patients, the volunteer base, and most of all the mission. They are a top notch foundation all around, and I am honored to be a part of it. "It's About Living!!"
Lazarex Cancer Foundation is extremely special and unique in so many ways. One being their mission, two being their amazing staff and volunteers, three being their VIP patients, four being their fabulous events, and the list goes on and on. I am very proud to be a part of the Lazarex Team, and I am very grateful for all that Lazarex does to support the Cancer community and Cancer patients who refuse to stop fighting!
To believe in life and everyone should have a chance for one more day when given the horrible news there is nothing more we can do for you, get your affairs in order. Lazarex gives you the opportunity to try everything and find a possible cure for your cancer. With having the ability of trying everything to have another day, week, month or many years with your loved ones. That is the true gift of life!
The Lazarex Cancer Foundation, is an amazing group of passionate people. To believe in life and hope when you are reaching into the unknown is so rewarding. TheIr passion of risk and chance in the blind belief in healing the body is so beautiful and comforting.

Carol, Thank you for your support and for the review!
I met the founder and initial staff of this organization when it was just starting out. Their story was compelling but it their future was uncertain. Years later, they are going strong and their newsletters are full of stories that educate and inspire. Lazarex is an organization I wholeheartedly support for the value of its work and the purity of its vision.
