FIND AN EVENT IN YOUR STATE

  Lung Cancer is a devastating disease. Funding to develop improved screening, treatments and cures has been and continues to be woefully inadequate. We need to work together to improve awareness which in turn will hopefully lead to more support for requests for state and federal funds.

The purpose of this site is to provide all Lung Cancer event listings in one place. There are many worthwhile non-profit lung cancer advocacy sites but none list ALL the organized activities and some only list their own events.

Please find an event in your area and lend it your support. If there is no event, start your own. All these events started with just a few people. Many event organizers will help you with information about how to start an event. Your event doesn't need to raise money - raising awareness and assembling a mailing list for lobbying your representatives is just as useful a goal. If a state is not linked above, it has no event at this time. It sure would be great to see one or more awareness events in every single state.
  • Number of Deaths, Five-Year-Survival-Rate: Limited Progress. Lung cancer will remain the #1 cancer killer this year, claiming about 160,000 lives: three times as many men as prostate cancer, nearly twice as many women as breast cancer. More people will die from lung cancer this year than from breast, prostate, colon, leukemia, ovarian and cervical cancers - combined.

  • This deadly disease has taken the lives of over 2.7 million Americans since 2000. Of this number, over one million of these people never smoked or had quit smoking, often decades ago. This simply cannot be viewed as a 'smoker's disease'. That is not to say that smoker's 'deserve' lung cancer. How did smokers become 'victims' while the tobacco companies continue to make billions in profits? There is no legally available additive drug like cigarettes. People are allowed to get hooked, told to quit and then allowed to die with limited, successful treatment options available.
If you want to read all the news about lung cancer research every week, subscribe to the email newsletter produced by the Caring Ambassadors Lung Cancer Program. There are a few such newsletters but none of them are nearly as informative and inmpressive as the emailer compiled by Cindy Langhorne, CAPS Program Director.

  • FREE Educational Materials - Lung Cancer Choices 3rd Edition, Chapter One discusses diagnosis and stages of Lung Cancer. Request your copy.

  • The Revival of Vaccines in Lung Cancer - "The renewed interest in therapeutic cancer vaccine approaches in lung cancer arises from the convergence of several key developments: the clinical success of immune checkpoint inhibitors, a better understanding of the role of immune checkpoints in the cancer immunity cycle in modulating the efficacy of cancer vaccines, and advancements in computational and bioinformatics platforms that enable the development of cancer neoantigen vaccination strategies."

  • Is it lung cancer? This blood test can tell - "Some cancers - particularly lung cancer - are often detected incidentally, after unrelated medical exams. In many cases, it is difficult to tell the malign from benign tumors, except by using invasive methods such as a biopsy. However, one blood test that can rule out cancer may be the game-changer that we require."
