I wrote earlier this week that my mom died on Tuesday. Since we are not having a funeral, my co-workers wanted to know what charity I would like to direct their $ collection.
I'm not in any shape to do any research about my options. I'd like to find a 501(c)3 that is specifically lung cancer with low overhead costs.
Perhaps a stupid Q, but does Lung Cancer Alliance fit the bill? Is there another charity that is more directed toward lobbying for more $ for lung cancer research?
Also, I am donating the wheel, shower, and commode chairs, walker and pneumatic hospital bed cover to the Red Cross of Arlington. The Free Clinic did take ALL (even opened) unexpired Rxs. And I gave 27 lbs of convenience foods I bought for my mom to the Food Bank. The Free Clinic took all the Boost, Ensure and BioCare Slush I couldn't EVER get my mom to drink.
I'm still looking for someone who needs unopened O2 tubing and a $300+ wig with accouterments never worn only tried once.
