The Suzy Allen LMS Research Fund

The Suzy Allen LMS Research Fund

Suzy’s mission is to increase awareness of LMS and raise funds for a cure. LMS is a rare cancer and has received little attention from the medical research community. While there is currently no cure, your generosity, along with promising research, could change that and save thousands of lives like Suzy’s. Federal funding for research is declining, limiting the potential for critical new discoveries. Sarcoma receives a mere one percent of all cancer funds, with an even smaller portion going to LMS research.

Dr. Matt van de Rijn at Stanford University Medical Center has won various awards as a leading edge researcher. To learn more about Dr. van de Rijn’s extraordinary work, please click here.

Donations made to www.lmsdr.org are tax deductible and go directly to fund LMS research. The mission of LMSarcoma Direct Research Foundation is to assure the development of the means to cure and control the disease and to improve the quality of life for those with this disease until the cure is found. This Foundation has been determined by the IRS to be a tax deductible public charity under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Many companies have matching gift programs on a dollar for dollar basis. Some companies will even double or triple your gift. Please check with your Human Resources department.

Your thoughtfulness and action could help us find a cure. Please donate generously. Contributions of ANY amount are greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged. Please spread the word to anyone you think may have an interest in giving. Fundraising events will also be posted so please visit again soon.
