Lung Cancer Alliance Hails Signing of Tobacco Control Legislation Into Law; Urges Action on Lung Cancer

has hurt so many patients whether they smoked or not, and has caused lung cancer to be the least funded of the major diseases," she added. "I believe that President Obama is sympathetic to this issue and hopefully will move to change public health policy on lung cancer as well."

Lung cancer is the biggest cancer killer in every ethnic group, taking more lives each year than breast, prostate, colon and pancreatic cancers combined. Over 50% of new cases are being diagnosed in former smokers and another 10% to 15% in people who have never smoked. The 5-year survival rate is still only 15%.

Lung Cancer Alliance is the only national non-profit organization dedicated solely to patient support and advocacy for people living with lung cancer and those at risk for the disease.
