Leaders of the Lung Cancer Free World
The National Lung Cancer Partnership is the only lung cancer advocacy organization founded by doctors and researchers working together with survivors and advocates to increase lung cancer awareness and research funding. Our mission is to decrease deaths due to lung cancer and to help patients live longer and better through research, awareness and advocacy.
Anyone can get lung cancer.
Women are the key healthcare decision makers in the US families. Unfortunately, they also largely unaware of lung cancer's impact. Did you know:
48% of people diagnosed with lung cancer are women.1
In a recent survey, 83% of women did not know lung cancer takes more lives each year than breast cancer.2
Men's lung cancer incidence rates began declining more than 20 years ago, while women's rates only recently began to decline slightly.3
The face of lung cancer is changing. From our roots as a women-focused professional organization to our more broad spectrum of programming today, the Partnership has developed programs to empower all women affected by lung cancer, whether they are survivors or loved ones.
By making a donation, you will join the Partnership in creating a grassroots shift in the perceptions and awareness of this disease while funding the research necessary to eradicate it.
