Every year in November, people around the world work together to recognize and raise awareness of the challenges that come from a diagnosis of lung cancer. Awareness is the first step to prevention. Funding research is the first step towards finding treatments that will prolong and save lives. Learn the facts about lung cancer and find out about screening and prevention.
