Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

No other foundation reimburses patients for expenses associated with participation in clinical trials. This is one of the main reasons why they choose to not participate and thus give up a chance to extend or even save their lives. Based on my experience with Lazarex they offer hope at a time when it is needed most. These are people who truly care!!

Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband Mike was the inspiration for this foundation. He was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer at 44 yrs. old and passed away when he was 46, leaving behind 3 young children and myself. Our experience with a clinical trial gave us hope and time that we would not have had. My awesome sister started Lazarex to help end stage patients and their families find and participate in clinical trials. As far as I know Lazarex is the only organization in the USA that does what they do. It has been a great blessing to be able to help others who are in a similar situation. Go Lazarex!!

Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Lazarex Cancer Foundation is an organization that is run by people who really care to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their families. It is because my personal experience fighting cancer with my husband that I can truly appreciate how very unique, important and needed the services of Lazarex truly are. Lazarex truly is about hope and life.

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

the lives of many of the patients and families that we have had the honor of serving. They are the true heroes here. They are the ones who are battling for their lives and the ones with the courage to participate in a clinical trial...hope and life!!

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

knowing that we have been able to help patients and families during such a difficult time in their lives to have a chance at more good times together...more birthdays, Holidays, vacations, seasons...time.

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

wonderful and have their hearts in the right places!!

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

Help lots more people!!!!
