    • No One Deserves Lung Cancer
      No one Deserves Lung Cancer
    • The face of Lung Cancer is not what you think…
    • *50% of new cases are former smokers, many who quit decades ago.
    • *Another 10 - 15% have never smoked.
    • *Lung cancer is the HIGHEST cause of cancer deaths;
      more deaths than breast, prostate, colon andliver cancers combined.
    • *One in every three cancer deaths; three times as many men as prostate cancer twice as many women as breast cancer.
    • *Only 16% of all new cases are being diagnosed at an early stage when lung cancer is curable.
    • *The overall 5-year survival rate for lung cancer is still only 15%..
    • ..while the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer is 90%, for prostate cancer 99% and for colon cancer 66%.
    • *Lung cancer is the least funded of these cancers.
    • Why?  
    • *No priority or sense of urgency within federal research agencies.
    • *Blame the victim mentality similar to AIDs.
    • No one deserves Lung Cancer.
    • Rest In Peace
