Lazarex Cancer Foundation builds a bridge to hope, dignity and life for cancer patients and their families. We provide financial assistance to defray the costs associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials. Additionally, we help patients navigate their clinical trial options and provide community education and outreach services.

  • We help patients of all ages and walks of life, with all forms of cancer.
  • We help patients take advantage of medical breakthroughs today, because they may not have a tomorrow.
  • We believe that the size of a patient's checkbook should not stand between them and the choices they make or the treatments they need.
  • We provide resources to fill the gap that exists between when a patient is told there is no more hope and when they are truly done with their journey in life.

Thank you to my guest Lazarex Cancer Foundation President and founder Dana Dornsife who became involved in cancer patient advocacy when her brother-in-law, Mike Miller, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003. Mike had three children, the youngest of whom was only four years old. Dana and her family searched for options for Mike that would buy the family some time and found a clinical trial treatment. Mike was treated successfully and lived long enough for his youngest daughter to have real memories of him. Since then, Dana has fought tirelessly for improved options for cancer patients who have been told there is no hope left.  Found out more about them, to ask for help or ways YOU can help AND even run and raise $$ for a patient as part of their Team For Life program here:
