Upstage Lung Cancer is a 501(c)(3) lung cancer charity. Our mission is to heighten lung cancer awareness, remove the stigma, and hold lung cancer fundraising events to support research on early detection and innovative treatments. We use music and the performing arts to accomplish our mission.
In 2011-2013, we awarded a 2-year, $600,000 grant, in conjunction with the LUNGevity Foundation, to Dr. Rebecca Heist of Mass General Hospital, Boston, MA, for her innovative research identifying new tumor genetic changes in lung cancer. This work will help develop new targeted therapies and aid in early detection.
Your contribution will be used to support cutting edge research to help find new treatments and methods for early detection of Lung Cancer. 3
