The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF) was founded with one diagnosis, long before its official start date, when Bonnie’s life was redefined. Her prognosis was grim when she was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in 2004. Following a 14-hour surgery, a battery of nurses and doctors, an army of radiation and chemotherapy treatments, blood clots, procedures and tubes that invaded her formerly predictable life, Bonnie became a Lung Cancer survivor. In a unique position to become the voice for the other 1.5 million people personally affected by the #1 cancer killer, she began to think of ways to help others facing the crisis of this highly stigmatized disease. “What about the 450 other patients who die a day of Lung Cancer in the U.S. alone, and their families?” Bonnie asked. “Where’s the outrage?” On March 6, 2006, the news broke that Dana Reeve lost her battle with Lung Cancer. Bonnie decided: “Enough was enough!” BJALCF was born.
No one survives the crisis of Lung Cancer without a worldwide web of people and the most up-to-date treatment. There is no better place to funnel research dollars than to BJALCF and its multitude of collaborators and programs when it comes to the pursuit of extending and enhancing the lives of patients and families with Lung Cancer.
