About Us

Cancer Crusaders was founded in 1976 and incorporated in 1978 for the purpose of raising funds for the cancer research in the New Orleans area. Cancer Crusaders, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer organization with no administrative overhead, and it is not affiliated with any other cancer fund-raising organization.

Proceeds raised by the organization are donated annually to Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Foundation and Tulane Cancer Center in New Orleans for the express purpose of Cancer Research. Since 1978 these proceeds, which are in excess of $4,000,000, have helped these institutions complete worthwhile studies and begin data collection on possible theories that seek to unravel the complexities of cancer.

Because Louisiana has such high incidence of cancer mortality, our organization feels that it is imperative that priority be placed on research funded, conducted, and in general, supported by those to whom it directly relates and whom it will ultimately benefit. We strive to spread the word about Cancer Crusaders in the hopes of gathering other much-needed volunteer time, talent, and of course, funds for this very worthwhile cause.
