Help Fund Lung Cancer Research

Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women. An estimated 350,679 Americans are living with lung cancer. Survival rates for lung cancer tend to be much lower than those of most other cancers. Men have higher rates of lung cancer than women. However, over the past 30 years, the lung cancer age-adjusted incidence rate has decreased 9% in males compared to an increase of 143% in females.

Given the magnitude of the lung cancer and the enormity of the death toll, the American Lung Association strongly recommends that the NIH and other federal research programs commit additional resources to lung cancer research programs.

Please send a letter today to Congress urging them to increase the National Cancer Institute budget to $5.003 billion.
