Levy Cancer Foundation

 

The Levy Cancer Foundation (LCF) is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization developed as a vehicle to raise funds to benefit the Vermilion Parish area. The foundation was established as a tribute to the late Irvin and Josephine Levy, both residents of Abbeville who suffered from cancer. Utilizing viable options for treatment, LCF has collaborated with Abbeville General to assure local residents that seeking treatment for cancer is a realistic option. “Treating cancer close to home” is the mission and donations are tax deductible through the Levy Cancer Foundation.
