November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a time to share important information and highlight stories of patients, survivors, and their families to raise awareness.
This year, more than 228,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with lung cancer. Anyone can get lung cancer; in fact, 60%-65% of new lung cancer diagnoses are among people who have never smoked or are former smokers.
Because lung cancer is historically stigmatized and underfunded, awareness is an essential first step to improve the quality of life and outcomes for the hundreds of thousands of people living with the disease today.
While Lung Cancer Awareness Month 2020 may look and feel a little different than in past years, now more than ever we need your support to spread awareness about lung cancer and keep lung cancer research moving forward. Even from home, you can make a difference.
