GenWay Sponsors the 2nd Annual San Diego Breath of Hope Lung Cancer Walk

GenWay will feature the You Test You Cancer Assessment at Lung Cancer Alliance's Breath of Hope Lung Cancer Walk. The You Test You Cancer Assessment is an option for individuals to be proactive and regularly test themselves for cancer.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2010 -- GenWay Biotech, Inc. is proud to announce its participation in and sponsorship of the second annual San Diego Breath of Hope Lung Cancer 5K Walk. GenWay will be showcasing their You Test You Cancer Assessment at the event which will be held on Sunday, May 2nd, 2010 at 9am in Cancer Survivor Park, near Harbor Island. Please visit for more information about the event and learn how to register as an individual or team.

The You Test You Cancer Assessment is a blood test that measures a protein biomarker called tFFDP which highly correlates with development and progression of lung cancer as well as 18 other cancer types and can provide evidence to a physician that a malignant tumor may be present. This test has been specifically Health Canada approved as an aid in detecting and monitoring lung cancer. The You Test You Cancer Assessment can be ordered directly online from the website: This enables individuals to take a proactive step and routinely test themselves for cancer. This is particularly important for lung cancer which is the deadliest cancer type mainly because it is primarily detected in the later stages of the disease.

The California chapter of Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) is hosting the San Diego Breath of Hope Lung Cancer Walk to raise awareness and defy some common myths about lung cancer. Lung Cancer Alliance is a national non-profit organization that has made excellent strides in obtaining funding for lung cancer research receiving more than $35 million from the federal government in recent years. The San Diego Breath of Hope Lung Cancer walk alone raised an impressive $155,000 for research in its first year in 2009. Lung Cancer Alliance offers a tremendous lung cancer information resource on their website and can be found at:
