Why We’re Uniquely Qualified

It really comes down to the people behind the organization -- our dedicated volunteers, advocates, chapters, Board of Directors, partners and staff --- and how we execute a very well thought out and effective strategy.  Although much more needs to be done, we are confident of meeting the challenges ahead because:

  • We put the needs of patients and their loved ones first – we are patient and caregiver-driven and wake up every day thinking what we can do better and more of to help them today. 
  • We are information-based, providing the most up to date and relevant information on every aspect of lung cancer -- presented in easy to understand language for a wide audience – that will help save lives today.
  • We work with anyone – individuals, communities, businesses, foundations, institutions and other nonprofits – who also share our vision.
  • We are tireless advocates with a growing network of volunteer activists that are the driving force behind a nationwide lung cancer movement. 

We share our business information openly on our website and will answer any inquiries into our funding.  Click here to view our most recent annual report.
