THE BATTLE HAS JUST BEGUN!
Silent Killer & Abysmal Lung Cancer Funding
Per the American Cancer Society, Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in both men and women. More women die each year from lung cancer than from breast, uterine, and ovarian cancers combined. Every hour of every day, 19 people die from lung cancer and at least 15-percent never smoked. Lung cancer is considered a silent killer, since the disease is most often not detected until it is in a terminal stage. Historically, Lung Cancer funding by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is abysmal, as compared to its funding for other cancers.
