- Lung Cancer Basics
Advocacy is one of the three pillars of our mission. Advocacy is about standing up, being visible and being heard. It is about promoting change and not accepting the status quo. It is about taking a public stand for those causes and issues that matter to you. Advocacy – in all of its forms -- is one of the most fundamental rights in a democracy and a founding principle of our great nation. YOU are our most important advocate.
Your elected officials want to hear from you! They need to know what is going on in their districts and it is up to you to tell them. We can help you with that. FInd out how.
We have taken the lead in developing the Congressional Lung Cancer Caucus made up of members of the House of Representatives.
The federal government plays a key role in nearly every aspect of cancer policy – from funding research to determining what cancer screenings and treatments will be covered by insurance. Today more than ever, advocacy at the federal level matters. Learn more.
Join us in Washington DC this fall as we work to increase research funding and access to quality care for those impacted by lung cancer.
