Donate your miles to fly cancer patients to Clinical Trial Treatments

 

Your United Miles on a Mission donation will go directly to Lazarex Cancer Foundation patients who need to fly to potentially lifesaving clinical trial treatments. Often these are patients for whom standard therapy has failed and they need the advanced medicines that are in clinical trials today for a chance at hope and life. We fly the patient, along with a travel companion for assistance, to FDA approved clinical trials throughout the country. With access to these miles we will be able to help more patients in need. Thank you to United and thank YOU!

“By donating to Lazarex Cancer Foundation you are saving lives and I thank you!! Because of you, my daughter progressed from having this tumor almost totally take over her body and her life to becoming a walking, talking happy teenager.” -Marilyn P

“Joshua is in the sixth month of this trial and doing great! He has a full head of hair and is enjoying one of his first summers (that he can remember) NOT on the couch." -Carmela F

How We Work- We believe that all patients, regardless of their finances, deserve the opportunity to take advantage of the latest discovery offered in clinical trials.

About us

History Lazarex Cancer Foundation was founded by Dana Dornsife in 2006 in response to a family experience with the challenges of an advanced stage cancer diagnosis. In 2003, Dana’s brother-in-law Mike was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Dana searched for clinical trial options that would give Mike additional time with his wife Erin and their 3 young children. Mike responded well to his trial, living long enough to help his sons prepare for their future and for his daughter to remember him. He lived 19 months instead of the projected 3 months he was given. Since then Lazarex has tirelessly advocated to remove the barriers to clinical trial participation on behalf of cancer patients who have been failed by standard of care and have lost hope. Mission At Lazarex Cancer Foundation we improve patient access to cancer clinical trials. Vision The vision of Lazarex Cancer Foundation is that everyone affected by cancer will have hope, dignity, support and the most advanced treatments made available to them at all stages of their journey. We believe that all patients, regardless of their finances, deserve the opportunity to take advantage of the latest discovery offered in clinical trials.
