What Can We Help You Find?

Why We Need Your Help
Get Involved

The very best “boots on the ground” advocates to help lung cancer research are lung cancer survivors and their friends and family. Exciting discoveries in lung cancer research are happening now, which means funding research is critical and you can make a difference.



Lung Cancer Foundation of America Events

It is time for everyone touched by lung cancer to get involved and take action.That’s why we need all of you. We need your help to change the course of this disease. The poor survival rate for lung cancer is a direct result of the lack of funding for lung cancer research. We can help change this by funding new, creative and innovative research. With your involvement, we HOPE to fund grants for lung cancer RESEARCH that will give new LIFE to those suffering from this terrible disease.

Become a part of the solution – volunteer your efforts to raise funds for lung cancer research today!

Yoga is a great way to relieve stress – and a great way to raise funds for lung cancer research! Find a yoga studio in your area that will donate space and a teacher for a yoga class on a particular day. We’ll provide t-shirts for the teacher and hosts to wear at the yoga class. We’ll also provide LCFA swag for all participants. Ask for a $20.00 donation to LCFA as an admission price to attend the class. Then, set up your online fundraising page through LCFA to tell your story and promote your event.

My hope is that no other child has to bear the loss of their parent, no other wife is lonely without her husband, no sibling has to be without their brother, and other children will grow to know their grandpa, unlike mine.
