LUNGevity Spreads Awareness and Education through November

Recommended Posts

LUNGevity Foundation, the nation’s leading lung cancer-focused nonprofit organization, provides more ways than ever to get involved for Lung Cancer Awareness Month this November. LUNGevity believes strongly that everyone can drive progress and change for people affected by the disease, and invites its constituents to get involved, whether through social media advocacy, distributing educational materials, attending a Breathe Deep event, or organizing events and activities to raise funds and awareness.

This November, LUNGevity launched two new ways for those with social media savvy to help broaden and strengthen the lung cancer community.  The Foundation is launching the LUNGevity LungCam, a fun video tool that allows Facebook users to share their answers to questions about key issues facing the lung cancer community.  Users are invited to check the LUNGevity website each week for new questions; these personal videos can then be shared across social media networks to engage the community and raise awareness. Advocates are also encouraged to “Wear White on Wednesdays” to spread awareness and show solidarity in the fight against lung cancer.

Additionally, LUNGevity is launching a new Inhale for Life social media campaign to urge non-small cell lung cancer patients to talk to their doctors about biomarker testing, an important first step in accessing precision medicine. The benefit of this testing is illustrated in five moving videos of lung cancer survivors from across the country who are leading active lives today. LUNGevity encourages its social media followers to help disseminate these videos to their personal networks in order to broaden the reach and spread education about the importance of biomarker testing.

“This November, we are equipping individuals with the tools they need to help spread awareness about lung cancer, especially the importance of biomarker testing. We know our community is very active on social media, so we developed compelling content they’ll want to share to reach people who are facing a lung cancer diagnosis,” said Andrea Ferris, President and Chairman of LUNGevity Foundation. “Together we can have the greatest impact on this disease.”
