Mission & Vision

 

 

The mission of the Cancer Crusaders, a non-profit 501(c)3  all volunteer organization, is to provide support for cancer research in the Greater New Orleans Metropolitan area independently from any other cancer organization, locally or nationally.  We do not have an office; we work out of our homes.  We do our own marketing, mailings, and we try and get everything we need donated or underwritten to keep all costs to a minimum.   Funds raised through Cancer Crusaders are distributed annually to the Louisiana State University (LSU) Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center and Tulane University Cancer Center in New Orleans to support important cancer research including seed funds for cancer research projects, funding to promote training for young emerging scientists, endowment support in the recruitment of nationally recognized researchers and funding for community education and cancer early detection programs.
