Drive for Hope

On Monday, June 5, 2017 Gundersen Medical Foundation will host the 10th Annual Drive for Hope for Lung Cancer Research golf tournament at the La Crosse Country Club. Last year, hundreds of golfers, sponsors, businesses, dinner attendees and volunteers helped us to net more than $26,000 for local Lung Cancer Research. Drive for Hope advances research which ultimately translates into state-of-the-art care for the patients and communities we serve. for Hope advances research which ultimately translates into state-of-the-art care for the patients and communities we serve.

Lung Cancer

  • Lung cancer kills more people than breast, colon, prostate cancer combined, yet these three cancers receive an average of 5.8 times more research funding per life lost than lung cancer.
  • Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in men and women.
  • Lung cancer is often called the "disease of smokers," yet as many as 20% of people who die from lung cancer have never smoked.
  • There is hope! A new screening test is now available for current and former smokers. It has been shown to significantly reduce the number of deaths caused by lung cancer.
