Raising Funds for Research

Lisa Przybyla

Lisa’s Fundraising for Research

A few pills a day: that is what survival looks like for many ALK-positive lung cancer patients. But eventually, all patients develop resistance to this treatment.

No one yet knows what causes this form of lung cancer, and there is no cure.

ALK Positive, a patient-led advocacy group, is leading the effort to fund groundbreaking research. In partnership with GO2, this research will pursue lower rates of resistance and increased rates of survival.

Your support is more than helpful, it has a genuine impact on the lives of our patients, because more research = more life.

Help support life-changing research by donating to my fundraiser. And please, share this page with your family and friends.

My Story (shortened version 😊)
In March of 2017 I was given the news that I had Stage IV Non-small cell Lung cancer caused by the ALK gene mutation. As you can imagine this news has been devastating to me and my family. Because of recent research advancements I am currently able to treat my cancer by taking Targeted Therapy. This therapy is working well but a day will come that it will no longer be effective. Research advances are what I and many others need to give us more time. Thank you for donating to help me and all those affected with this terrible disease ❤️
