The Louisiana Cancer Foundation for Research and Education is a nonprofit health service organization whose programs are designed to encompass all phases of the cancer experience. From prevention through education and research, to free cancer screenings for early detection, we try to teach individuals the importance of taking care of their own health in a responsible way. However, regardless of what we do or do not do, people still develop cancer. Knowing that when this happens, it can be one of the most difficult experiences of a person’s life, we offer cancer patients support programs for both their emotional needs as well as their financial needs. We feel honored to be able to provide to the residents of our area programs that are unique and open to anyone regardless of financial status. No other organization offers free public cancer screenings and direct patient assistance to any cancer patient living in or being treated in Northeast Louisiana. We invite you to review our services and take advantage of any that might benefit you or someone you know.
