LUNGevity Foundation Launches One-of-a-Kind Lung Cancer Survivor Resource Center

Lung cancer survivors who helped test the Center before its launch gave their enthusiastic support:

"The Survivor Resource Center is great! This is EXACTLY what the newly diagnosed and lung cancer survivors need." ~Heather, lung cancer survivor

"I really liked the section on asking the right questions.  When a diagnosis is new to you it's hard to know what questions to ask.  Also the emotional state one might be in after receiving a cancer diagnosis may make it harder to think of the questions that should be asked."  ~Barb, Lung cancer survivor

Over the course of their lives, one in 14 Americans is affected by lung cancer. Lung cancer can afflict anyone regardless of age, gender, smoking history or skin color. Fortunately, the past decade has seen significant research-based advances in early detection and therapeutics for lung cancer patients. The 2011 National Cancer Institute's National Lung Screening Trial showed the importance of detecting lung cancer early, and for the first time established a screening approach for a high-risk population.

Progress is being made in research for the development of blood biomarkers, genome sequencing capabilities and molecular and imaging technologies to help detect the disease. Targeted therapies are greatly improving the treatment experience, including quality of life, for some lung cancer patients, and progress is being made in both immunotherapy and antiangiogenic therapy (cutting off the blood supply to lung cancer tumors).

LUNGevity has the largest grants award program for lung cancer research among lung cancer nonprofit organizations in the United States. In the past two years, LUNGevity has awarded over $5 million to the most promising lung cancer research proposals in the areas of early detection and targeted therapeutics. To help support its mission and raise awareness of the disease, the organization hosts 75 community-building and fundraising events across the country each year.

About LUNGevity Foundation

The mission of LUNGevity Foundation is to have a meaningful impact on improving lung cancer survival rates, ensure a higher quality-of-life for lung cancer patients and provide a community for those impacted by lung cancer. It does so by supporting critical research into the early detection and successful treatment of lung cancer, as well as by providing information, resources and a support community to patients and caregivers.
