It's Lung Cancer Awareness Month!

Anyone with lungs can get lung cancer. This November, for Lung Cancer Awareness Month, we're spreading facts about lung cancer and life with lung cancer, and highlighting the many advocacy efforts and experiences of the community.

Lung cancer accounts for 25.3% of all cancer deaths, and causes the most cancer-related deaths in the United States. Researchers are making remarkable progress, despite disproportionate funding, but improving awareness, advocacy, and funding are just as important as ever.

Check below the poll for some easy ways to spread awareness!
