Wortman Lung Cancer Foundation

If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer.

Linda and Jerry Wortman’s story of determination and willpower has served as an inspiration to many.

The Wortman Lung Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that is inviting everyone to join in helping to change the face of lung cancer by raising funds for lung cancer research and supporting stress free living and survivorship. Her primary goal is to find a cure for the number one cancer killer.

All proceeds are donated to lung cancer research and researchers at Mayo Clinic
Wortman Lung Cancer Foundation 501(c)(3) is non-profit and accepts donations throughout the year supporting lung cancer research, and lung health at Mayo Clinic.

“Won’t you please join us today? Every step brings us closer to a cure.” – Linda Wortman
