Bringing the Best Cancer Care to the Gulf South Region

Louisiana faces a dire cancer crisis. Our state ranks 6th for cancer diagnoses and 4th for cancer deaths nationwide yet receives less than 1% of funding from the National Cancer Institute. This staggering lack of resources threatens countless lives in our communities.

But there is hope! The Al Copeland Foundation, founded in memory of the legendary restaurateur “Big Al” Copeland, is spearheading a revolution in cancer treatment right here in Louisiana.
