Laurendeau Cancer Care Fund 


Founded in 1980, the Laurendeau Cancer Care Fund is named after Dr. Theresa Laurendeau, a retired Bellingham Pathologist.

After many years of serving at what was then St. Luke’s Hospital, she was exposed to the mental and financial burdens faced by cancer patients and their families. She provided the foundation’s initial funding which has assisted over 500 Whatcom County cancer patients in paying for medical expenses who aren’t eligible for public assistance or have limited resources.

If you are interested in applying for Laurendeau Cancer Care Fund support, contact Chuckanut Health Foundation. If you are interested in making a donation, please indicate that you would like your gift go to Laurendeau Cancer Care Fund when you make your donation. You can make a donation online, by phone or by check. Thank you!

God bless you and the Laurendeau Foundation. You will not be forgotten.
