Prelude to a Cure is a non-profit organization dedicated to cancer research, one note at a time. With the help of many talented musicians, we raise funds to research new and successful treatments to eradicate lung cancer from our world. By connecting musicians, cancer research centers and hospitals, Prelude To A Cure assists in not only finding new screening methods to detect lung cancer before it spreads, but to help find a cure. Our donations to support the prevention, treatment and cure of cancer through research will surely make a difference in the many lives of those facing the challenges of cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. The five year survival rate for lung cancer is 16%–for smokers and non-smokers. With your help, we can break through the negative stigma of lung cancer. Lung cancer patients desperately need improved screening methods for early detection, more effective treatments and a cure. Sadly, non-smoking lung cancer patients also suffer the negative stigma and, as a result, the consequences of inadequate screening and treatments.
On July 7, 2016, five police officers were killed and eight police officers were injured in the line of duty in an ambush on the Dallas Police Department, Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police, and El Centro College Police. Run For The Blue was founded in response to this attack to support fallen and injured officers and their families.
