L5 stands for “Live 5”. When a cancer patient survives for 5 years after a cancer diagnosis and treatment, we think of them as being cancer-free. Our goal at L5 Foundation is to ensure the best quality of life by providing for the essential and basic needs for cancer patients and their families for those 5 years and longer, if needed.
Many families are overwhelmed during cancer treatments, and even being able to put food on the table or buy gas for transportation to and from treatments can be a struggle.
L5 raises and distributes funds to organizations sharing similar values of providing aid and comfort for cancer patients and their families in their greatest time of need.
What your donations provide:
$12/per month will provide 2 meals for a Cancer Patient
These meals are essential to health and well being during treatment.
$15/per month will provide 1 hour of Respite Care for a Cancer Patient Caregiver
Caring for a Cancer Patient 24/7 is extremely stressful. Being able to take an occasional break is important to ongoing care.
$20/per month will provide 1 Pilot Gas card for a Cancer Patient to get to their doctor’s office
Because of the high cost of cancer treatment, getting to the doctor’s office is often an extreme hardship. Our Pilot partnership provides gas money to ensure patients can keep their appointments.
$50/per month will provide a Cancer Patient with a daily meal for one week
Going through chemotherapy and radiation is extremely stressful. Being able to count on a nutritious meal makes things easier.
