A lung cancer diagnosis leaves everyone in the family confused, frustrated and hurting. Take positive action by raising funds for lung cancer research in the name of your lung cancer hero.

Together we can raise funds for the types of lung cancer research that will lead to new treatments and protocols and, eventually, a cure for the disease.

Research is the key to raising the 5 year survival rate from its current rate of 17%. Help us help lung cancer patients and their families have a better future!

A paid life insurance policy that is no longer needed for its original purpose can be of significant value. You may be eligible to receive an income tax deduction for the “case surrender” value of the policy to a charity. If the policy is not fully paid and you continue to pay the premiums, you may be eligible for deductions for the amount of payments completed. Lung Cancer Foundation Of America may also be included as a beneficiary on life insurance policies.
