About Lazarex Cancer Foundation
Our mission: Lazarex Cancer Foundation is improving patient access to cancer clinical trials. 
 
We help advanced stage cancer patients who have run out of standard treatment options. If they are not ready for hospice and wish to still be engaged in fighting the cancer then clinical trials are the only treatment pathway left. Lazarex helps patients nationwide, of all ages, from all walks of life, with all types of cancer. We remove the barriers to clinical trial participation and help patients access treatments that may extend or save their lives.
 
Most common barriers to trial participation that we address:
  • Trial Identification - Identifying clinical trials that a patient may be a candidate for is difficult for the average person. There are over 10,000 FDA cancer clinical trials on the clinicaltrial.gov website.
  • Finances – the out of pocket costs associated with trial participation most often prevent patients from enrolling or staying in clinical trials. Sadly even a tank of gas, tolls and parking can stand in the way of treatment let alone airfare and lodging.
  • Support Network Interruption – Many patients are reluctant or unable to travel alone. Think about it – your future is uncertain, you don’t feel well, there are treatment side effects… should you be driving or getting important downloads about your treatment and prognosis alone?
 
Lazarex Cancer Foundation is the only non-profit in the United States that assists cancer patients with finding clinical trials and reimbursing them for the out of pocket travel costs involved in getting to those clinical trials. We also cover the travel costs for a companion so they do not have to travel alone. We will continue to support a patient until they are no longer participating in a clinical trial. Since 2006 we have assisted over 3,000 patients will trial navigation and financial assistance. Learn more at www.lazarex.org
