Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Lungevity does two things very well: it really cares about those with lung cancer, focusing substantial resources on information and patient/survivor support programs, and it funds research into treatment and early detection. It is a well managed non profit with administrative expenses below 10% of total revenue. The annual International Lung Cancer Survivorship Conference is a substantial event bringing hope and new therapy information to patients and caring family members.

Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

LUNGevity does three vital things for lung cancer patients and their families: drives science by funding research, empowers patients by providing insight and assistance through online and telephone support, and improves outcomes by broadcasting knowledge about new treatments and methods.

Review for Lungevity Foundation, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

LUNGevity is a nonprofit focused on a very deserving but underserved (some would say ignored) population of cancer patients -- those with lung cancer.
LUNGevity does two things well that distinguish it from other non-profits. First it supports and sustains lung cancer survivors and those who care for them. It sponsors a very effective online forum that brings survivors and caregivers together to foster hope, share treatment experiences, and spread side-effect mitigation ideas. Second it funds research to advance the science and therefore the development of effective curative treatments.
