Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation (TBBCF)

*   

TBBCF, a non-profit group committed to fighting breast cancer by directing 100% of gross fundraising dollars directly to breast cancer research, was established in 2006 by Norma Logan (who died of breast cancer six months after Terri) and Sandy Maniscalco to honor Terri Brodeur, who died in 2005 after a two-year battle with breast cancer. Terri was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in July, 2003 at the age of 39. Over the next two-plus years Terri waged a battle that, in the end, was defined not by how the cancer impacted her physically but how she triumphed emotionally and spiritually. Terri left a legacy of courage and love that will never be forgotten by those fortunate enough to know her - a beautiful woman with a beautiful smile. Since 2006, TBBCF has awarded 44 breast cancer researchers $4.4 million in research grants. 

GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer

formerly the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF)

 “Empower Everyone. Ignore No One.”

ALCF is one of the largest philanthropies (patient-founded, patient-focused, and patient-driven) devoted exclusively to eradicating lung cancer through research, early detection, education, and treatment. The Foundation’s goal is to work with a diverse group of physicians, organizations, industry partners, individuals, patients, survivors, and their families to identify solutions and make timely and meaningful change and turn lung cancer into a chronically managed disease by 2023. ALCF was established on March 1, 2006 but it really began long before its official start date when Bonnie Addario was diagnosed with Stage IIIB lung cancer at the age of 57. Her prognosis was grim when she was diagnosed in 2004, but UCSF thoracic surgeon, Dr. David Jablons, offered Bonnie a contrary opinion about surgery. Following a 14-hour surgery to remove the top left lobe of her lung and part of her esophagus, radiation and chemotherapy treatments, blood clots, and additional major surgeries, Bonnie became a lung cancer survivor. During her long and arduous recovery, Bonnie had time to think and to act. She become the voice for the 1.5 million people affected by lung cancer. Bonnie began ALCF to help people facing the crisis of this disease. Since 2006, ALCF has raised over $30 million for lung cancer research and related programs. In March of 2019, ALCF joined forces with Lung Cancer Alliance to form the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer making them the “go-to” global force serving and advocating for the needs of the entire lung cancer community.
