Free to Breathe (FtB) and the Lung Cancer Research Foundation (LCRF) merged on September 30, 2017 to further our impact on lung cancer research discoveries. Our joint organization is now known as the Lung Cancer Research Foundation. To learn more, please visit the Merger Announcement page on LCRF’s website.

Research saves lives

Investment in research has significantly improved survival rates for other cancers in the past several decades. With your support, the Lung Cancer Research Foundation is working to make lung cancer a part of this story.

Lung cancer claims more lives each year than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined, but these cancers receive proportionately more research funding than lung cancer.

Our grant program

The Lung Cancer Research Foundation’s Scientific Grant Program provides funding for innovative research focused on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of lung cancer. The goal of the grant program is to fund innovative research projects across the spectrum of basic, translational, and clinical research. The Foundation encourages applications on a wide variety of topics including:

  • Improving our understanding of lung cancer biology
  • Prevention and screening for early detection
  • Identification of new biomarkers and the development of targeted therapies
  • Development of more effective and safer therapies
  • Psychosocial research including supportive measures for people with lung cancer and their families
  • Quality of care and outcomes research for the improvement of healthcare standards and overall patient outcomes
