How Your Donation Helps

Down Goes Cancer – The Joe Mak Memorial Foundation has three primary initiatives. 
We partner with local research facilities to support ongoing lung cancer research to find new cures and treatments for the disease.
We also seek grant requests on an ongoing basis to provide financial assistance to members of the community suffering from lung cancer. Ongoing treatment, hospital stays, surgeries, and lost wages can have a crippling impact on families and DGC offers aid to support families during this difficult time.
While many lung cancer sufferers are non-smokers, DGC recognizes the important link between smoking and the incidence of lung cancer.  Therefore, we are committed to implementing and promoting educational and community outreach programs related to lung cancer and smoking prevention and cessation.
