About Lung Cancer

  • Lung cancer is currently the leading cause of cancer death, affecting one in 14 Americans.
  • Anyone can develop lung cancer – 60% of diagnoses are in people who have never smoked or quit years earlier.
  • Lung cancer kills almost twice as many women as breast cancer, and almost three times as many men as prostate cancer.
  • If caught early, the survival rate at five years is more than triple what it would otherwise be. 

About LUNGevity

LUNGevity is firmly committed to making an immediate impact on quality of life and survivorship of people with lung cancer by accelerating research into early detection and more effective treatments. LUNGevity provides community, support, and education to all those affected by the disease.

In order to accomplish our mission, LUNGevity funds the most promising research into the early detection and successful treatment of lung cancer. LUNGevity also supports the largest national grassroots lung cancer network, as well as the largest online support community for those affected by lung cancer.
