Help get lung cancer the attention that it deserves!

Lung cancer statistics are alarming, especially when viewed in relation to the amount of funding dedicated to lung cancer relative to other cancers. Lung cancer is currently responsible for 29% of cancer deaths in the United States, responsible for more deaths than breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer combined (About.com). Unless we try to increase awareness (and, as such, funding), nothing is ever going to change! It is time to get funding for lung cancer!
