BENEFITING: LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION
Dear Friends, Family, and Colleagues,
In only a few short months, I'll be taking to the city streets and running the 2015 New York City Marathon -- my first one ever.
I've decided to run on behalf of the Lazarex Cancer Foundation, a fantastic non-profit that connects end stage Cancer patients with the information and means to participate in FDA clinical trials. While many organizations fund research, Lazarex directly impacts the lives of individuals and families by allowing them to take advantage of current medical breakthroughs and technologies.
As the daughter of a Cancer survivor and a former marathon runner, this cause is near and dear to me.
If you are interested in donating, any amount would be great. Support in all shapes and sizes is hugely appreciated.
See you at the finish line!
About the LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION:
WE HELP CANCER PATIENTS, WITH ALL FORMS OF CANCER, TO ACCESS POTENTIALLY LIFESAVING MEDICINES TODAY THROUGH FDA CLINICAL TRIAL PARTICIPATION.
"We provide resources for cancer patients who have been told they have no other options, but who are not yet done with their journey in life and refuse to give up now."
People who are undergoing cancer treatments are quickly depleted physically, financially and emotionally. A final diagnosis of "terminal" or "end stage" cancer is devastating. All hope is lost and all too often patients are lost in the gap that exists from "get your affairs in order" to hospice/end of life. Lazarex helps bridge that gap.
Lazarex Cancer Foundation builds a bridge to hope dignity and life for cancer patients and their families. We provide financial assistance to defray the costs associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials. Additionally, we help patients identify their clinical trial options and provide community education and outreach services.
We help patients of all ages and walks of life, with all forms of cancer. We help patients take advantage of medical breakthroughs today, because they may not have a tomorrow. We believe that the size of a patients's bank account should not stand between them and the choices they make or the treatments they need.
We provide resources to fill the gap that exisits between when a patient is told they have no more hope and when they are truly done with their journey in life.
