Donate in Honor or in Memory

Donating to the International Lung Cancer Foundation is a caring way to honor a loved one whose life has been impacted by lung cancer. Donate in honor of your loved one to celebrate their lung cancer survivorship. Donate in memory of your loved one to express your condolences after they pass away. If you wish, the ILCF will notify your loved one’s family of your gift on your behalf.

Support Researchers!

People who are diagnosed with lung cancer gain hope through improved treatment options resulting from scientific advances. The International Lung Cancer Foundation exists to fund innovative research that leads to scientific advances in the detection and treatment of lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies. We need your help to fund our next round of researchers and their innovative projects. Despite being the leading cause of cancer death, lung cancer receives far less government research funding than any other cancer, so research support from corporations, foundations, and individual donors is crucial.
