Donate your leftover currency to The Ruth Strauss Foundation

The Ruth Strauss Foundation’s mission is to help families access professional and emotional support when facing the death of a parent

In early 2018, Ruth Strauss, wife of Sir Andrew Strauss the former England cricket captain, was diagnosed with an incurable lung cancer that affects non-smokers. Ruth died on December 29th December 2018; she was 46 years old and mother to two children. In her memory, Sir Andrew launched the Ruth Strauss Foundation.

The Ruth Strauss Foundation’s mission is to drive more research & collaboration in the fight against non-smoking lung cancers

Ruth was a fit and healthy woman who had never smoked, so the diagnosis of stage IV lung cancer came as a terrible shock. The reality is that the number of people diagnosed in the UK each year with non-smoking lung cancers is on the rise.  

The charity works hard to inform GPs and HCPs on the not-always obvious symptoms of this cancer, with the hope that patients are diagnosed sooner to ensure better treatment options and better outcomes.
