Our Mission

Supporting Life with Cancer®

The Lobster Extravaganza is an annual fundraising event supporting the non-profit organization, Life with Cancer®. Life with Cancer’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of those affected by cancer by providing education, information and support.

Life with Cancer is the nationally recognized educational and emotional support program of the Inova Schar Cancer Institute. As the region’s only community-based, nonprofit cancer support and education center, Life with Cancer is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of cancer patients, survivors and their loved ones. With locations across Northern Virginia, Life with Cancer provides greatly needed resources, support and comfort to thousands of patients with cancer and their families through educational classes and consultations, an annual survivorship conference, support groups, individual and family counseling, and mind-body/wellness programs. All services are provided by certified oncology nurses and licensed clinical social workers and are offered at little or no cost to patients thanks to the generous support of individuals and businesses throughout our community.
