Please help me raise funds for lung cancer awareness and research. As a never smoker, my family and I were surprised when I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. What I have learned from this is all you need are lungs to get lung cancer. Despite causing more cancer deaths for men and women and causing more deaths per year than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined, lung cancer receives far less research funding than any other cancer. I have a gene mutation that occurs in 1-3% of people. I appreciate the reserachers who chose this mutation to study and help those like me to be able to live a quality life due to their hard work to find a cure.

ABOUT Fundraising Events For Lung Cancer Research

Whether it's bowling, yoga, biking or baking, you can find many ways to host an event that helps fund impactful lung cancer research. It takes just a few minutes to set up a fundraising page, and our tips can help you raise more money and reach more people.

Lung cancer kills 433 Americans every day.
That’s the same number of seats on a 747.

Lung cancer kills almost 2x as many women as breast cancer.

The facts around lung cancer speak volumes. Lung cancer poses a threat to anyone with lungs. New research, diagnosis, and treatment breakthroughs in the last 10 years have brought new hope to patients and their families. But we still have far to go—your fundraising donations will help LCFA fund more young researcher grants and scholarships while raising awareness of the vital need for more research funding for lung cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment.

Proceeds from these fundraising events will be used to support LCFA’s mission

While raising funds to support lung cancer research, LCFA will raise the public’s awareness and serve as a resource for patients or anyone seeking answers, hope, and access to updated treatment information, scientific investigation, and clinical trials.
