Understanding Lung Cancer
Most people associate lung cancer with smoking. But did you know one in five women with lung cancer never smoked a day in her life? The same goes for one in 10 men. And that because of the stigma from smoking tobacco, lung cancer research continues to be greatly underfunded? By building awareness and educating people about these and other facts, we can help provide a brighter future for lung cancer patients who continue to hold their breath.
