Lung Cancer Alliance-California Issues Inaugural State-Specific Report Card on Lung Cancer
Date:11/13/2008

too should it be for all California's by our state public health and policy leadership. Whether you are a current, former or never-smoker - no one deserves lung cancer - and we commit to working with anyone who shares our goal of increasing research funding and ending lung cancer as we know it," she said.

Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer death nationally, as well as among California men and women, causing one in every three cancer deaths in the state. In 2008, an estimated 18,060 Californians will be diagnosed and 13,100 will die from the disease--more than the combined total of breast, prostate, and colon cancers.

Lung Cancer Alliance is the only national non-profit organization solely dedicated to patient support and advocacy for people living with, or at risk for, lung cancer. Lung Cancer Alliance is committed to leading the movement to reverse decades of stigma and neglect by empowering those with or at risk for the disease, elevating awareness, and changing health policy.
