The Stroud Foundation was established in honor of Lee Ann Stroud. Lee Ann Stroud passed away from Cancer of Unknown Primary (CUP) in August 2008 at the age of 56. During her eight month battle, Lee Ann exemplified what it meant to be a giving person- even while facing the most challenging of circumstances. Her family decided to honor Lee Ann’s “pay-it-forward” attitude by helping to put an end to CUP, so that cancer patients and doctors alike can have an accurate diagnosis and treatment.
