Join us in raising money for lung cancer research in honor of Michele Kahn and Arnie Komisar. Our families understand why it's critical to invest in lung cancer research and here are some facts you should know so you join the fight:
-Lung Cancer has the lowest survival rate of any other cancer but continues to receive the least amount of funding per death… less that 15% survive 5 years.
-Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer among both men and women in the US -Over 50% of new lung cancer cases will be diagnosed at a very late stage—Stage IIIb or IV. Only 5% of them will live for 5 years
This could be prevented if an early detection tools were available. Join us in our commitment to ending lung cancer through education and research. Please donate here or walk/run with us on April 24th!
