The government is not focused on funding lung cancer research.
There are many factors involved in how research is funded. Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the US, yet it receives far less federal research funding per life lost than other major cancers, such as breast, prostate, and colon.
With your help, promising research will get a much-needed boost to reduce lung cancer mortality.
Donate today. You can make a difference and get us one breath closer to the end of lung cancer.
