This year, more than 238,000 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, raising 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.
