Lung Cancer Foundation of America Gives the Gift of Life This Holiday Season: Announces Inaugural $125,000 Scientific Research Grant
Date:12/22/2009

Lung cancer, the nation’s leading cause of cancer deaths for women and men remains the most under-funded, under-researched and under-supported cancer. There are currently no approved early detection tests for lung cancer. With a 5-year survival rate of only 15%, the prognosis for lung cancer has not changed in 40 years. A new organization, Lung Cancer Foundation of America (LCFA) is trying to change this reality, and save lives by dramatically increasing the five-year survival rate for all stages of lung cancer. LCFA will accomplish this by providing the necessary and critical funding for creative and leading edge lung cancer research programs. This Holiday Season, LCFA is giving the gift of life and hope by announcing its inaugural $125,000 scientific research grant in partnership with the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC).
