Mission Statement

Prelude to a Cure is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to support lung cancer research with the help of many talented musicians.

Description

By connecting musicians, cancer research centers and hospitals, Prelude To A Cure hopes to assist in not only finding new screening methods to detect lung cancer before it spreads, but to help find a cure. Our donations to support the prevention, treatment and cure of cancer through research will surely make a difference in the many lives of those facing the challenges of the diagnosis. Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States. In 1987, it surpassed breast cancer to become the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer research is the least funded of all these cancers, and the deadliest. The five year survival rate for lung cancer is 16%-for smokers and non-smokers.
