URGES LEADERSHIP ON LUNG CANCER

WASHINGTON, July 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Lung Cancer Alliance praised President Obama's nomination of Dr. Regina Benjamin as U.S. Surgeon General and urged the family physician from Alabama, whose mother died of lung cancer, to change public awareness and public policy on the disease.

The Surgeon General of the United States serves as the nation's chief health educator by providing the best scientific information on diseases and how to improve health.

In a letter to Dr. Benjamin, LCA President Laurie Fenton-Ambrose said, "To have a family physician in this important position, and one who has devoted her life to making a difference for the under-served sends a message of hope that we can and will do better."

That message is particularly needed for those hundreds of thousands of families touched by lung cancer.

"Your family has suffered - so many families have suffered - from the devastation of this disease," she said.

Only heart disease causes more deaths each year, yet the public is not aware of the statistics or of the underfunding of research into the disease.

Citing the President's frequently expressed empathy for those who started smoking at a young age, Fenton-Ambrose said: "We are hopeful that the President's understanding and sympathetic approach and your own tragic experience with lung cancer will signal an end to the decades of stigma, blame and neglect that has allowed lung cancer to become the most lethal yet least funded of the four top cancer killers.
