Polish Off Lung Cancer, Paramus Park, NJ

December 15, 2012

One enterprising young philanthropist found a very unique way to celebrate her birthday. Inspired by her Grandfather’s battle with lung cancer, this Lady Bountiful invited her group of friends to celebrate with her at a “Polish Off Lung Cancer” event at a local shopping mall. The girls were asked to donate to LCFA and have their nails polished and then to participate in the fundraiser by painting the nails of shoppers at the mall. These enterprising young ladies raised over $600.00 for lung cancer research! What an inspiration!

6th Annual Golf4Erik Tournament, Fontana, CA

May 11, 2012

The 6th annual golf tournament honoring the memory of Erik Hidalgo will be held on May 12, 2012 in Fontana, CA. Each year since 2007, Erik’s family has hosted a golf tournament in his honor with the proceeds going to charity. This year, the Hidalgo family team has again designated Lung Cancer Foundation of America as the recipient of their fundraising efforts.

Erik Hidalgo, a non-smoker, was just 24 years old when lung cancer took his life, six days before his first wedding anniversary and a mere 68 days after his diagnosis. Erik was also an employee of the Jonsson Cancer Center at UCLA where his computer knowledge, gentle manner and ease with people made him a fast favorite with everyone on the fund-raising team. He truly enjoyed his job, which he found inspiring because he believed the work of the cancer center was so important.

To register golfers, please print the flyer attached here. To donate directly to Lung Cancer Foundation of America, supporting the Hidalgo’s efforts to raise funds for lung cancer research, please click here.

9/11 First Responders Fundraiser, Nationwide

April 1, 2012

Among the 12,000 police officers and others who responded to the September 11th attacks, many have been diagnosed with cancer-related disabilities, more than triple the rate before the attack.

LUNG CANCER ranks as the most commonly diagnosed form of cancer among this population of First Responders.

Lung Cancer Foundation of America is asking for your help in funding research grants that will be awarded to lung cancer investigators who are committing their RESEARCH efforts to improving the survival rate of lung cancer and to bringing HOPE and LIFE to all victims of lung cancer – wherever they are and however they contracted the disease.

Lung Cancer is an unacceptable consequence of the selfless efforts of the 9/11 First Responders who now find themselves faced with a lung cancer diagnosis as a result of their exposure to toxins at ground zero. Let’s help these national heroes, and the heroes in your life who are affected by lung cancer. Please make a difference - click here to donate today!

Breath of Relief, A Benefit for Lung Cancer Awareness, Herndon, VA

February 18, 2012

On February 18 2012, Virginia high school student, Nathan Wong, organized a benefit concert with proceeds going to Lung Cancer Foundation of America. Nathan and his team feel strongly about raising funds for lung cancer research since, in his own words, “my group members and I have been personally affected by this cancer that has taken the lives of those dearest to us. Our grandpas, grandmas, and uncles have all been diagnosed with this disease, and all have not lived to tell their story of survival and perseverance.” LCFA is grateful to Nathan and his team for this very successful event! What an inspiration these philanthropic high schoolers are for all of us!
