The idea of setting up the foundation came up with Ruth in the last few months of her life. Ruth desperately wanted to help those affected by this terrible disease and she had a very strong sense of charity – in the broadest sense – of helping others less fortunate than ourselves.”

Our Strategy

Our mission is simple.

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 2018; she was 46 years old and mother to two children, then aged 10 and 13.

IN HER MEMORY, SIR ANDREW HAS LAUNCHED THE RUTH STRAUSS FOUNDATION TO:
  • Provide emotional support for families to prepare for the death of a parent
  • Raise awareness of the need for more research & collaboration in the fight against non-smoking lung cancers.
