About

We serve our mission through public health, advocacy, research and education, including the LIVESTRONG Resource for Cancer Survivors.

Education - The LAF informs cancer patients, health care professionals and the public about the physical, emotional and practical issues that people face in their battle with cancer. We provide the practical tools and resources people need to live with a cancer diagnosis.

Advocacy - The LAF represents people affected by cancer on Capitol Hill. We are increasing awareness, encouraging the government to take action, and addressing the health policy concerns of people battling cancer.

Public Health - The LAF plans, develops and funds programs that provide after-treatment support and services for people living with cancer and their families.

Research - The LAF supports scientific and clinical research that seeks to better understand cancer's physical, emotional and psychosocial effects and the challenge of living with the disease.
