The John Atkinson Lung Cancer Foundation
The John Atkinson Lung Cancer Foundation, named for John Atkinson, a nonsmoking father of three children and devoted husband who died of lung cancer in June of 2009 at the age of 40, strives to be an advocate on lung cancer awareness.

John and his family began pursuing the vision of the foundation during the last year of his battle against lung cancer. John felt like he was given an opportunity to help raise awareness about this awful disease, as well as educate people that anybody can get lung cancer, even nonsmokers. The John Atkinson Lung Cancer Foundation creates connections with students, schools, organizations and community members to reach our goals.

Goal 1: To provide scholarships to students who have lost a parent
to lung cancer.

Goal 2: To raise awareness of lung cancer.

John handed the torch to his family. Through vision and determination, the foundation continues to give hope to those affected by lung cancer.The deadline for the scholarship application is March 1st. Students are awarded up to $2,500 to be used at a college, university or vocational/trade school. The scholarship is only given to high school seniors who have lost a parent to lung cancer and it is not renewable. Please download and complete the scholarship application, if you are eligible to apply from the website.
