The family of Austin Lacey has established The Austin Lacey Fund (through the Mitchell Cancer Institute of the University of South Alabama) to raise awareness for and to facilitate early diagnosis of cancer in young adults, as well as to provide support services for young adults who have been diagnosed. 

Austin Lacey lost his battle with lung cancer at the age of 28 on May 4, 2011. Austin worked with his family to establish this fund before his death so that other young people could get the early diagnosis and treatment they need.
