Thank you!

You made a difference this year

Thank you for making 2017 a hugely successful year for Lung Cancer Foundation of America (LCFA).

As the days grow shorter and we start to wrap up the year, we are reflecting on what LCFA has been able to accomplish this year:


Target on lung cancer cell

Funding More Lung Cancer Research

In 2017, in partnership with the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, LCFA is funding $800,000 in lung cancer research grants, for the very first time. That is:

  • 4 grants
  • 4 young investigators
  • $200,000 awarded per grant
  • for 2 years of work

Past LCFA grants have led to groundbreaking discoveries in:

Raising Lung Cancer Awareness

LCFA’s mission is 2-fold: to raise funds for lung cancer research and to raise awareness of the need for those funds. To that end, LCFA produced Satellite Media Tours within 2017 that:

  • Reached nearly 45 million people in the United States
  • Reached viewers on both broadcast television and the internet and reached listeners on AM/FM radio
  • Reached viewers and listeners in both English and Spanish
  • Satellite Media Tours aired in top media markets throughout the country

 

 


Celebrating LCFA’s 10-Year Anniversary

Also in 2017, Lung Cancer Foundation of America is celebrating our 10-year anniversary. During this time, we have been able to award $2,289,000 in lung cancer grants!

Thank you for your support over the past decade.

LCFA is celebrating our commitment to continuing our important work in 2018 and beyond.
