Evidence of Impact

The Lung Cancer Alliance has been effective in increasing the flow of money towards lung cancer funding. It has also had a strong influence over Congressional decisions and policy changes.

Help Funding of Lung Cancer
LCA is focused on lobbying in Washington DC to get more federal funding for lung cancer research. They generate good increased awareness around the under-funding for lung cancer research. Foundation Professional
Lung Cancer Alliance is a wonderful organization that focuses on correcting the injustice of the underfunding of Lung Cancer. Their presence in Washington, D.C. is enormously helpful. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Strong Impact on Policy
Lung Cancer Alliance is an effective organization in impacting policy to improve research and access to early detection and screening for lung cancer patients and those not yet diagnosed. They were active in pushing the NCI to undertake the NLCST which showed increased survival using spiral CT and to quickly move this option to the public as an accepted screening methodology. Nonprofit Senior Staff
The lung cancer alliance is strong on the policy side and is a significant voice for patients in DC. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They have a strong advocacy posture in the face of Congress. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Small but Effective Organization
This is a small organization, but it is well informed, collaborative, and engaged on all levels. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

According to experts, the organization's greatest strengths are its unique ability to affect policy and its dedicated leadership.

Strong Focus on Advocacy
Their connections and experience working within Congress are very good. They also have a very good patient support network. Foundation Professional
One of its greatest strengths is its broad and deep experience as an advocacy organization dealing with government bureaucracy. Its leadership and staff was able to push thru a $10M appropriation for the study of Lung Cancer. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Great Leadership
Laurie Fenton, the president, is one of the most wonderful and caring and persistent advocates for Lung Cancer. Also Sheila Ross, one of the founders, is part of this dynamic duo. Their leadership will have and does have an impact on convincing government officials to put as much money into Lung Cancer, the #1 cancer killer as breast and prostate. If this can be done, lung cancer's survival rate will be up in the 90s with these two other cancers. Their strength in pursuing this goal is helpful to the entire lung cancer community. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Its leadership is its greatest strengths. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They have a strong involvement on the legislative side, strong leadership, and solid operations. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

The major criticisms of the Lung Cancer Alliance are that the group should spend more time raising awareness on the issue and on new developments in lung cancer research and that it should be more collaborative with other groups.

More Collaborative Efforts
They have a tendency to isolate from the rest of the lung cancer community of foundations rather than trying to leverage the constituents of all of the foundations in order to have a greater impact on federal funding. Foundation Professional
More Staff
I believe if they could hire more staff they could grow nationally and have more impact across all 50 states. Nonprofit Senior Staff
More National Fundraising
The reach of the Lung Cancer Alliance could be greater in all areas - especially education and research - with additional funds. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They should become more involved and aware of new treatments, trials, and research opportunities to educate congress . They could also help with broader national fundraising campaigns. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Raise More Awareness
They could do more on the awareness side to help remove the stigma associated with this disease. Nonprofit Senior Staff
The major criticisms of the Lung Cancer Alliance are that the group should spend more time raising awareness on the issue and on new developments in lung cancer research and that it should be more collaborative with other groups. Nonprofit Senior Staff
