Georgia Receives Failing Marks for Third Straight Year

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Lung Cancer Alliance-Georgia (LCA-GA) issued its 3rd Annual Report Card on Lung Cancer. This Report is an assessment of progress being made against this lethal disease in the state of Georgia. LCA-GA is a chapter of Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA), the only national organization dedicated exclusively to patient support and advocacy for people living with or at risk for lung cancer.

Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths nationally, as well as among Georgian men and women, resulting in 30 percent of all cancer deaths in the state. This year alone, 5,980 Georgians will be diagnosed and 4,570 will die from the disease --- more than the combined total of breast, prostate, and colon cancers.

"Despite these alarming statistics, the Georgia legislature and Georgia Cancer Coalition have virtually ignored lung cancer and its impact on citizens throughout the state," said Ed Levitt, LCA-GA Chair. "State funding for lung cancer prevention, early detection, better treatments and research must increase if we are going to see a reduction in mortality rates in Georgia."

"For the third straight year, LCA-GA has laid out their commitments to reversing the decades of stigma and neglect associated with lung cancer," said Laurie Fenton Ambrose, LCA President and CEO. "They have an incredible team in place willing to work with other organizations who share their common goals laid out in their 2008 Report Card on Lung Cancer."

The LCA-GA 2008 Report Card on Lung Cancer uses seven categories to annually grade progress in key benchmarks areas, in order to alert Georgian public health and public policy leaders and state residents to what needs to be done to address lung cancer appropriate
