StemExpress Foundation

LUNG CANCER PROJECT

The ever-present goal of the StemExpress Foundation is to improve the lives and outcomes of patients with all kinds of diseases. To that end, we are excited to be participating in a new lung cancer project! Researchers have created a new diagnostic tool to detect lung cancer earlier and in a less invasive way than traditional biopsies. In order to make this new screening available to the public, these scientists need small samples of blood from people with lung cancer so that they can run their test with a targeted outcome and prove its efficacy.

SHARE YOUR STORY

What do you wish people knew about your condition? Illness and disease affect our lives in so many different ways, and no two experiences are the same. You could write about how you or a loved one has been affected by disease, why you chose to participate in medical research, or what you hope will be cured in the future. If you want to share your story with us, but do not want it published on the StemExpress Foundation Blog, just let us know and we will keep it confidential. Stories can also be shared completely anonymously. 

WHAT THE FOUNDATION IS DOING IN OUR COMMUNITY

The StemExpress Foundation is supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at the Light the Night Walk, November fourth in Sacramento, CA. LLS is an incredible organization which provides hope and resources to people living with blood cancer across the United States, and supports research to end Leukemia and Lymphoma. Each Fall LLS holds the Light the Night Walk where those affected by Leukemia and Lymphoma come together after dark and take lanterns to the streets to spread awareness and show solidarity with patients and survivors. The StemExpress foundation will be supporting walkers in Sacramento, Ca by providing water to participants.
