Nobody deserves to die from lung cancer. And, therefore, we need to increase the funding such that it is proportionate to the burden of disease that we have in this country. Lung cancer, although it is by far the greatest cancer killer, taking more lives each year than breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer and pancreas cancer combined, receives far less in terms of federal research dollars than these other cancers. Now is the time to change that.  Now is the time to go all in for lung cancer research.

We need your help!

The very best “boots on the ground” advocates to help lung cancer research are lung cancer survivors. But, the 5-year survival rate for lung cancer remains at 17% – almost the same as it was in 1971, the year Congress declared War on Cancer.

It is time for everyone touched by lung cancer to get involved and take action.That’s why we need all of you. We need your help to change the course of this disease. The poor survival rate for lung cancer is a direct result of the lack of funding for lung cancer research. We can help change this by funding new, creative and innovative research. With your involvement, we HOPE to fund grants for lung cancer RESEARCH that will give new LIFE to those suffering from this terrible disease.

Become a part of the solution – volunteer your efforts to raise funds for lung cancer research today!
