Nothing goes into our pockets just the opportunity to represent a great cause on a grand stage.

BE APART OF HER STORY:
How are the donations you collect put to use?
Each month Lazarex Patients get a check so that they can access life-saving treatment. Patients with advanced-stage cancer often cannot pursue clinical trial treatments because of the financial costs to get to the research site and the strain of being away from their family’s support. These are treatments that could potentially extend a patient’s life and lead to cures for many others. Lazarex Cancer Foundation 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. No other foundation helps patients and families affected by cancer in such a direct way. You can learn more about Lazarex at www.lazarex.org.
In 2015 alone, Lazarex provided financial support to over 400 patients with advanced-stage cancer. To date, Lazarex 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!
Cheers to Life!
