It's Time to Take on Lung Cancer
Progress in the fight against lung cancer is being held back by a critical lack of funds. For example, per death, lung cancer gets a fraction of the government dollars -- less than 10% -- that go to breast or prostate cancer. The gap is even greater when you include private funding. Your dollars can make a tremendous difference:
• Increasing public awareness of this devastating disease;
• Providing support to patients, survivors, and their loved ones;
• Funding cutting-edge research;
• Educating the public and increasing awareness
Your donation can make a big difference, right now.
