Making a Difference

In the Fight Against Lung Cancer

The mission of Rexanna’s Foundation for Fighting Lung Cancer is first and foremost to support efforts focused on increasing the survival rate of lung cancer patients. This is supported by 3 goals:


Raise funds for lung cancer research and education


Increase awareness of lung cancer


Promote early detection, prevention and targeted treatments


Rexanna Hawkins, 49, died of lung cancer on June 21, 2006. Never a smoker, Rexanna found out she had lung cancer on April 21, 2006.

Known for her fiery spirit, competitiveness, huge heart and loyalty – Rexanna impacted many former students, coaches, colleagues, and friends not to mention the future lives her wishes of giving back will impact through the creation of Rexanna’s Foundation.
