    Why We Need You With Us

    Every two minutes and 14 seconds someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with lung cancer, and 4 in 5 of those diagnosed will ultimately die from the disease. Yet, more Americans than ever are surviving lung cancer. While the disease remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among both women and men, over the past five years, the survival rate has increased by a dramatic 13% to 22.6%. Your support will help us continue the progress in our efforts to defeat lung cancer.
