Hope for Lung Cancer Research Dollars in California: The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (BJALCF) Applauds Landmark Legislation to Push through Funding for Lung Cancer Research in California
Date:1/9/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Today is "a moment in history" in the battle against Lung Cancer -- the Number One Cancer Killer, thanks to California Assembly Member Tom Torlakson (D-11th District).

Addario has pledged the Foundation's ongoing endorsement and commitment to push this through and t
