Buy Mother's Day Gifts, Support Lung Cancer Research

Skip the typical Mother's Day gift basket this year and give your Mom beautiful jewelry that can make a difference. National Lung Cancer Partnership is offering a bracelet with matching earrings made of Swarovski crystals and two stylish lapel pins to help raise awareness and research funding for lung cancer, the number one cancer killer of women in the U.S.

Madison, WI (PRWEB) April 7, 2008 -- Skip the typical Mother's Day gift basket this year and give your Mom beautiful jewelry that can make a difference. National Lung Cancer Partnership is offering a bracelet with matching earrings made of Swarovski crystals and two stylish lapel pins to help raise awareness and research funding for lung cancer, the number one cancer killer of women in the U.S.

One of the misconceptions about lung cancer is that women think they aren't susceptible to it. But sadly, lung cancer is the leading cancer killer of women in the U.S.

The Swarovski crystal lung cancer awareness bracelet is $50 and the matching earrings are $20. They are available as a set for only $65. In addition, an awareness pin finished in antique satin pewter is offered for $4 and a clear rhinestone awareness pin for $5. All proceeds directly fund lung cancer research and education and can be purchased at the Lung Cancer Marketplace.

National Lung Cancer Partnership was founded by physicians and researchers to support lung cancer research and education and specifically focuses on understanding how the disease affects women differently than men.

"One of the misconceptions about lung cancer is that women think they aren't susceptible to it. But sadly, lung cancer is the leading cancer killer of women in the U.S.," said Joan Schiller, MD, president, National Lung Cancer Partnership. "It is our goal to help women understand and be aware of their risks for lung cancer so they can be the best advocates for their own health."

According to Dr. Schiller, awareness among women about lung cancer is low. In a survey conducted by National Lung Cancer Partnership, only 12 percent of women believe they know the symptoms of lung cancer and fewer than 10 percent said they have talked to their doctors about their risk for lung cancer. Only 36 percent of women were aware that lung cancer kills more women each year than breast cancer.

National Lung Cancer Partnership is the only national lung cancer organization founded by physicians and researchers and focused on understanding how the disease affects women and men differently. The 501© (3) organization was founded in 2001. For more information, go to www.NationalLungCancerPartnership.org.
