Research is the key.


Cancer Crusaders was founded more than 35 years ago with one goal in mind: to support cancer research in Louisiana.  Since then, Cancer Crusaders has provided more than $2.5 million in support of the LSU Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center and Tulane Cancer Center endowments, fellow and resident programs and clinical research studies and data collection on possible theories in finding the answer to cancer.

Recently, the Louisiana State Legislature passed legislation allowing LSU and Tulane Cancer Centers to form the Louisiana Cancer Research Consortium. This newly formed Consortium will enhance the collaborative efforts between the two medical centers through the opening of a new research building in downtown New Orleans.  It will further enhance opportunities in attracting national grants and research projects that will open doors for new cancer treatment options.  Cancer Crusaders is continuing to expand its membership and activities that will continue to support important cancer research through two outstanding community institutions that are working hard at innovative treatments, cutting-edge research and to ultimately finding a cure for cancer.
