About the Foundation
The Marlene F. Landy Cancer foundation was established in memory of Marlene Landy – a beautiful, educated, 62 year old mother and grandmother who lived in Denver, Colorado and was originally stricken by breast cancer at age 58. Marlene passed away after her breast cancer metastasized to her other vital organs in 2004, but her legacy lives on in her family and in the Foundation.

Since the Landy family founded the Marlene F. Landy Cancer foundation in 2008, many other concerned individuals have rallied around the concept of helping those battling cancer and are serving as Board Members or support volunteer workers. The mission of the Foundation is to help not only those struggling with cancer, but also their families – through both financial assistance and health education.

Our Work
The members and volunteers of the Marlene F. Landy Cancer Foundation are a hard-working group, united in the purpose of helping individuals and families who need assistance in their fight against cancer. We are proud of the accomplishments achieved thus far, but can always do more with your help. Donations are gratefully accepted, and we also encourage anyone to join the team and help spread the word about the mission we have set out to attain.

For those who may qualify to receive a gift from the Foundation, please contact us via email, phone or mail. Each situation is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. As the Foundation grows, so too will the ability to expand our financial assistance program.

Financial Information
We are extremely careful with the money that you have entrusted to the Foundation through your donations. It is our goal that your monetary contributions directly reach families in need. To date, this goal has been achieved through funding provided by the Board Members and Marlene’s family, covering all administration and overhead costs. In the future, additional volunteers and discretionary spending will ensure that this concept continues.
