National Cancer Prevention Month

All News

According to the American Cancer Society, Lung Cancer is the second most common cancer in the U.S. and is responsible for approximately 25% of all cancer related deaths.1 Each year, more people die of lung cancer than colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancers combined.2

Join us during the month of February in honor of National Cancer Prevention Month to raise awareness for lung cancer prevention, earlier detection, and better access to cancer care. Together we can move towards better lung cancer outcomes.
