Lazarex Cancer Foundation provides resources for cancer patients who have been told they have no other options but who refuse to give up. Since its inception, the Foundation has helped end stage patients successfully fight a variety of cancers, including sarcoma, breast and pancreatic cancers.
Dornsife founded Lazarex in 2006 after her brother-in-law Mike Miller was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005. He was treated successfully and lived long enough for his youngest daughter to remember him. Since then, Dornsife has become a tireless patient advocate for the expansion of available resources on behalf of patients who have been told there is no hope left.
Lazarex also provides financial assistance to defray the cost associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials. Additionally, the nonprofit organization helps patients navigate their clinical trial options and provides community education and outreach services.
The Lazarex Cancer Foundation Team for Life training and fundraising program has been developed to help participants prepare for the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, to complete either a half marathon or a full marathon. Training includes a flexible schedule and the excellent support and guidance of Team for Life seasoned marathon and fundraising coaches.
Groups or individuals wishing to participate in the Team for Life training program are requested to contact Tami Keeler at 820-4517 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Rock 'n' Roll Seattle Web site is www.rnrseattle.com.
