BENEFITING: LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2017
How Do We Use the Funds You Raise?
Lazarex Cancer Foundation is literally the last line of defense for patients with advanced-stage cancer. Many patients cannot pursue clinical trial treatments because of the financial costs to get to the trial site and the strain of being away from their family’s support. These are treatments that could potentially extend or save a patient’s life and lead to cures for many others.
LCF matches cancer patients with the right medical studies anywhere in the United States and helps pay for the cost of their participation including airfare, hotel and diagnostics and a travel companion. LCF is the only 501(c)(3) public charity offering these services to patients nationwide, of all ages and walk of life, with all types of cancer.
This year, through June 2016, LCF has provided financial support to 533 advanced stage cancer patients!
As of December 2015, LCF patients have cumulatively lived an additional 507 years through their participation in clinical trials AFTER they were told that there were no other options.

To put it simply, you're giving Lazarex patients the chance to LIVE!
