LCFA Celebrates International Women’s Month

March is International Women’s Month and National Women’s History Month

In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.

LCFA  wants to recognize these remarkable women who use their lungs (and minds and hearts) to raise awareness and contribute to lung cancer research

Lung cancer kills almost 2x as many women as breast cancer and 3x as many men as prostate cancer.

Don’t you think research should be a higher priority?
