About Us

Community Outreach Is the Heart of LCFA’s Mission

Lung Cancer Foundation of America is working to change the public perception of lung cancer through education and personal stories about lung cancer.

In 2023, LCFA’s Public Education Initiatives showed progress on every element of LCFA’s mission: public awareness of lung cancer, educating lung cancer patients, and funding lung cancer research grants.

“If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer.”
“Lung cancer research funding needs to be a priority.”
