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:

“This Women’s History Month, as we reflect on the achievements of women and girls across the centuries and pay tribute to the pioneers who paved the way, let us recommit to the fight and help realize the deeply American vision of a more equal society where every person has a shot at pursuing the American dream.”

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

Honoring Women in Lung Cancer Research

Meet some of LCFA’s Young Investigator grant recipients – amazing women investigators making strides in lung cancer research.

“Based on my own personal experience, the LCFA Young Investigator award was the very first grant that I was ever awarded. I’ve been able to leverage that now into several million dollars worth of funding.”

~Dr. Kellie Smith, assistant professor of oncology at Johns Hopkins Medicine

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?

You can help fund new lung cancer researchers.
