LUNGevity Foundation is firmly committed to making an immediate impact on increasing quality of life and survivorship of people with lung cancer by accelerating research into early detection and more effective treatments, as well as providing community, support and education for all those affected by the disease. The goal is to create a world where no one dies from lung cancer.

LUNGevity was founded in 2001 by seven lung cancer survivors, and tens of thousands of others affected by lung cancer have joined in the years since.

The event is part of MLB's affiliation with Stand Up To Cancer, a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. MLB has supported SU2C since 2008 as founding sponsor. To learn more visit www.SU2C.org.
