In 2011, lung cancer will kill 160,000 of us – three times more than any other cancer. Unfortunately, lung cancer has never received public attention or research dollars in proportion to its prevalence or deadliness.
Leaders of the Lung Cancer Free World was formed to drag lung cancer out of the shadows and focus public attention on this cruel and unrelenting killer that affects smokers and non-smokers alike.
The CHEST Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), the world's largest clinical cardiopulmonary, sleep, and critical care medical society. The CHEST Foundation promotes public health awareness, supports research, advocates for anti-tobacco policies, and helps people avoid tobacco and quit smoking.
Over the next five years, more than 1,000,000 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer. Together, we can help save many of them. It’s time to fight back.
It’s time to stop relying strictly on government or the health care industry for solutions. We can all be leaders of a lung cancer free world. Please make a generous donation to our organization today.
