The Lexington Cancer Foundation’s mission is to create awareness and raise funds in the fight against cancer. We are also dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare for cancer patients.
The Lexington Cancer Foundation’s vision is to become a leading resource of funding and information to dramatically reduce the incidence and suffering caused by cancer.
The Lexington Cancer Foundation values accountability and stewardship of the funds entrusted to us by our donors, supporting grant proposals that avoid duplication of services whenever possible, operating with transparency and integrity, especially to avoid conflicts of interest.

The Pegasus Board, or junior board, is comprised of a group of young women with an interest in philanthropy and raising funds in the fight against cancer. Pegasus Board members attend Foundation events and/or volunteer at events. The Pegasus Board will plan and execute at least one event in the fall of each year.
Where We Are
Our offices are located in The Lexington Cancer Foundation, Inc. Volunteer Center at the Lexington Hope Lodge. The Hope Lodge is a no cost housing facility for cancer patients receiving treatment in the area. The facility can house up to 32 families referred to the Hope Lodge through area physicians based on assessed need. The Hope Lodge is owned and managed by the American Cancer Society. LCF contributed a large portion of the capital campaign to the facility, over $1,000,000, as well as an additional $1,000,000 in grants and pledges towards the facility since 2004. In exchange for the funds raised, LCF receives office space in the Volunteer Center at no cost.
