Since 2007, the Foundation has benn focused on funding research to detect lung cancer at its earliest and most treatable stage. Since 2009, 100% of funds raised have gone to fund research, not overhead.
The Foundation is also active in the larger lung cancer community. We actively participate with other lung cancer foundations like LUNGevity, which allows us to share administrative and staffing resources so that more money can flow to research programs, and to coordinate our efforts so that funding is deployed effectively and without redundancy.
Mission StatementThe Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation is committed to preventing lung cancer through education and research. We pledge:
- To spread awareness that anyone, at any age, can suffer from lung cancer.
- To support lung cancer research by funding the development of new treatments and better screening tools.
- To justly focus media and grassroots attention on lung cancer, since it is the #1 cancer killer in the US.
- To continue the fight!
