November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Lung cancer matters, too.  Nobody deserves it.  And, you do not have to smoke to get it. 

This year, nearly 230,000 Americans will be diagnosed with Lung Cancer.  It is the Leading Cause of cancer death in the United States.  It claims more lives annually than either Colorectal, Pancreatic, Breast, or Prostate cancers.  And nearly 20% of those diagnosed with Lung Cancer have never smoked.

Yet, it receives a small fraction of the ​attention and research funding.  

Help fight to change this!
