Did You Know?

Lung cancer is the number one cause of death from cancer. It takes more lives than breast, prostate, and colon cancer combined. Every day more than 440 people lose their battle to lung cancer. This is equal to a jumbo jetliner crashing every signal day. One in fourteen Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime. Lung cancer receives less than 5% of federal cancer research funding but accounts for more than 28% of cancer deaths. There is no effective early diagnostic testing for lung cancer. Only 16% of all those diagnosed with lung cancer will survive more than 5 years. The 5 year survival rate will improve by 52% if lung cancer is caught in its early stage before it has spread.*
