WASHINGTON, June 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- LUNGevity Foundation, the nation's leading lung cancer-focused
"Our goal with the 234 campaign is to educate the general public about the significant incidence and impact of lung cancer," said Andrea Ferris, President of LUNGevity Foundation. "We are looking to motivate people to take action and engage others in our effort to drive change."
One in 16 Americans will have a lung cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. Nearly 65% of new diagnoses are in nonsmokers, most often found late when the disease is stage 3 or 4 and more difficult to treat. Just a few years ago, late-stage patients had few treatment options. Today, due to accelerated advancements in research, this is changing, and many late-stage patients are living longer and better lives. We need to continue to accelerate investments in research to save lives.
The campaign will run through July as part of LUNGevity's ongoing efforts to engage new audiences to improve public health. The video may be viewed on the homepage of our website at www.LUNGevity.org.
