LCA Applauds ACS and Stand Up 2 Cancer For Their Work to Accelerate Lung Cancer Research

Lung Cancer Alliance congratulates American Cancer Society and Stand Up 2 Cancer for their new fundraising partnership targeting lung cancer research.  The initial project involves a $20 million dream team grant for lung cancer research.

Stand Up 2 Cancer, a charitable program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, awards grants to multi-institutional groups of scientists who work collaboratively, rather than competitively, on cancer research.

Lung Cancer Alliance has been a member of the Stand Up 2 Cancer Advisory Council since its initiation in 2008.

“This is wonderful news, as we all know that more innovative work is needed to address the critical unanswered questions surrounding this disease. Let’s hope this moves us further and quicker down the path to breakthroughs and cures” said Laurie Fenton Ambrose, President & CEO of Lung Cancer Alliance.
