Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to me, as I work every day to care for lung cancer patients and work on research that will lead us to improve treatment.
According to the American Cancer Society: "Overall, the chance that a man will develop lung cancer in his lifetime is about 1 in 15; for a woman, the risk is about 1 in 17. These numbers include both smokers and non-smokers. For smokers the risk is much higher, while for non-smokers the risk is lower."
Hopefully we can decrease this statistic and improve the lives of those who are affected. I'll appreciate all the support I can get! Together we can make a difference!
