                                                2017 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Lung Cancer Foundation For Young Women is very excited to provide these scholarships to families that have been impacted by Lung Cancer.
The Lung Cancer Foundation For Young Women was inspired by a young woman's fight with lung cancer, and a dream to help others with this disease.  The dream started in 2011 in order to provide information, support, and assistance to the alarming number of women diagnosed with lung cancer annually. Through the foundation that  dream continues until a cure for lung cancer is found, so all women can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
