Elizabeth Hoffmann, co-founder and President of Cancer Survivors Against Radon (CanSAR), passed away on November 6, 2013.
After her diagnosis, Ms. Hoffmann dedicated her life to educating cancer patients and policy makers about radon and its health impacts. She advocated courageously for more effective radon regulations and greater funding for radon mitigation initiatives in the United States. Her non-profit organization, CanSAR, empowers individuals suffering from lung cancer by offering them an online forum in which to share their stories with one another, the public, and government agencies. The organization also promotes legislative action to protect the public and works to bring greater social awareness of radon-induced lung cancer to communities everywhere.
