The Northwestern Louisiana Cancer Foundation provides financial assistance to Northwest Louisiana cancer patients. The NLCF pays for transportation to/from treatment and lodging during treatment. There are no salaries or benefits paid from the money raised. NLCF members are all volunteers.

“While our first fundraising event was extremely successful, we are still short the money needed to complete the van purchase, which is needed to help transport patients to and from cancer treatments,” said Sarah Stewart, director of the Northwestern Louisiana Cancer Center. “Please make plans to join us for this fun event where 100% of proceeds raised will go directly to the purchase of a van for transporting patients in the NWLA area back and forth to cancer treatments. This includes Campti, Clarence, Goldonna, Many, Zwolle, Winnfield, and so many more towns in Northwest Louisiana.”

If you are unable to attend this event and would still like to contribute to the van purchase, make a donation:

A huge thank you to our volunteer Committee: Kelly Krouse, Patricia Franks, Emily Zering, Brooke Lathem, Justin Krouse, Daniel Page, Eliza Behrenson, Kayla Dowden, Angie McKnight, and Sarah Stewart. This would not be possible with each and everyone of you!
