The foundation may provide funds through pre-paid vouchers, and pre-paid scheduled services by appointment, for women actively receiving treatment for lung cancer.
The Foundation though internal committees, will continually assess its public awareness and grant programs for their effectiveness of meeting the foundation's mission and goals. The scope of each program may be adjusted from time to time to maximize the overall benefits to women and their families.
The Lung Cancer Foundation For Young Women "LCFFYW" is not a research foundation.
LCFFYW does not provide cash grants to research labs. A lot of effort and a lot of money is needed to understand lung cancer, and to eventually find a cure. Although until lung cancer is recognized as the number one cancer killer in the US, and equitable federal and private funding is made available for research, the statistics will continue in a negative direction.
LCFFYW is not a lobbying foundation. We will leave that to the politicians and lobbyists without any further comment.
LCFFYW is not an insurance or Medicare payment foundation. We do not distribute cash and we do not pay for treatment. Insurance and government agencies should be taking care of this aspect.
