Each year, lung cancer takes more lives than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined yet receives the least amount of research funding of all major cancers. We vow to do our due diligence in making sure you will be proud of where your money goes when donating to our cause. And we hope that you are as excited as we are about the impact that we are starting to make.
L4L FUNDED RESEARCH
We are proud to team up with Gundersen Health System’s Kabara Cancer Research Institute, which has a strong focus on lung cancer research, and on implementing the next generation of diagnostic tests, that will match lung cancer patients with the newest targeted therapies directed at particular mutations in their tumor.
