Check out the video, above, featuring information about Lung Cancer Awareness Month!
Join IASLC in helping to raise awareness about lung cancer during November’s Lung Cancer Awareness Month. The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) is leading a joint effort among a consortium of non-profit lung cancer patient advocacy organizations and individuals. This effort is designed to produce a coordinated, harmonized public awareness campaign for Lung Cancer Awareness Month (LCAM) in November 2016.
A critical part of this campaign is to share and widely promote the stories of lung cancer survivors, caregivers and families of those who have been diagnosed with lung cancer. These stories will be displayed on the campaign’s brand new website www.lcam.org. They will also be shared on Twitter and Facebook feeds that have been set up specifically for the campaign. IASLC’s hope is that this effort will be maintained and expanded upon in subsequent years. Lung cancer accounts for about 27 percent of all cancer deaths and is by far the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.
