About Lung Cancer

  • Lung cancer impacts 1 in 14 Americans and is the number one cancer killer.
  • About 65 percent of Americans diagnosed with lung cancer either never smoked a cigarette in their lives or had quit smoking.
  • Less than 15 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer survive 5 years post-diagnosis because of limited early detection opportunities.
  • There is no widely available, effective early diagnostic test available today.

About GRACE

The mission of the Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE) is to provide expert-mediated information on current and emerging cancer management options in order to empower patients, caregivers, and health professionals to become direct partners in cancer care. GRACE (www.cancerGRACE.org) was founded by Dr. Howard (Jack) West, a medical oncologist based in Seattle, to provide high quality, expert-mediated cancer information for the general public, specifically for patients, their families, and other caregivers, that is not available through other sources.  Since its inception, its faculty, breadth and depth of content, and international audience have grown rapidly.
