L5 is focused on the essential and basic needs of cancer patients. Many families are overwhelmed during a family member’s cancer treatments and need help buying food or clothes, cleaning house, or even finding a baby sitter. L5 raises and distributes funds to organizations focused on basic patient care.
L5’s impact has been felt throughout East Tennessee. To date, organizations and charities that have received funding from L5 Foundation include: The Cancer Institute at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Niswonger Children’s Hospital, The Thompson Cares Fund at the Thompson Cancer Survival Center Foundation, and Angels of Hope (which provides food baskets for patients and their families going through treatment during the holiday season).
