- Lung Cancer Basics
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a time to connect with community, raise awareness for the cause and come together as one united force to stand up to the leading cancer killer. Everyone can play a part and make a difference. Here are some simple ways to take action this November!
With hundreds of Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events taking place across the country, chances are, there is one near you. Find one today! You can also Shine Your Light by hosting a lung cancer fundraiser at your office, school or in your community to raise critical funds for lung cancer research. Here’s how to get started!
During Lung Cancer Awareness Month, you have the opportunity to build on what we started in September, during LCA's National Advocacy Summit when we spoke up about the historical underfunding of lung cancer research. Right now, lung cancer federal research funding is threatened by provisions in the FY2018 Senate National Defense Authorization Act. Urge your Representatives to provide continuous funding for lung cancer research!
Don’t have time to host an event? Not savvy on social media? A monetary donation is one of the easiest and quickest ways to support the lung cancer community. You can donate in honor of a loved one to let them know you are thinking of them.
