Addario Lung Cancer Foundation

Patient Leader

Lung Cancer is the #1 cancer killer but still the least funded. Many people categorize it as "just a smokers disease" yet it strikes non-smokers every day. Actually, nearly 80% of newly diagnosed Lung Cancer patients never smoked, or quit decades ago. Lung Cancer is taking more lives than breast, prostate, liver and colon cancers combined, yet not funding and not nearly enough awareness is out there. The Addario Lung Cancer Foundation is working hard to raise awareness and funds to change the face of Lung Cancer and make it a chronically managed disease as soon as possible. We are funding research projects across the globe to help Lung Cancer patients beat this disease and to find more ways to detect it early. Together, we will Beat Lung Cancer BIG Time!
