About the Bob Mayberry Foundation
Our mission was to raise money and awareness for lung cancer research at MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The Bob Mayberry Foundation (formerly Mayberry Memorial),
a 501 (c)(3) foundation, was founded in 2008 by Diane Judah-Mayberry
to honor Bob Mayberry, a non-smoker, and his 5 year battle with lung cancer.
Did you know:
- More people – men and women – die each year from lung cancer than any other type of cancer?
- Lung cancer historically has accounted for more deaths than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colon cancer combined.
- Only 50% of people treated for stage IV lung cancer live for 1 year.
- Approximately 20% of all lung cancer diagnoses are patients who NEVER smoked. Yet, because of the stigma associated with the disease, lung cancer research remains extremely under-funded.
THANK YOU to everyone who has generously given of their time and resources to fight lung cancer alongside the Bob Mayberry Foundation.
