Shine a light on lung cancer
Every day in Australia, 25 people die from lung cancer while another 34 people are diagnosed with this devastating disease. It is our nation’s leading cause of cancer death, killing more people than breast, prostate and ovarian cancers combined.
Despite the staggering number of people affected, research funding for lung cancer in Australia is disproportionately low – in total it receives less than 5% of all cancer research funding.
You can help make a difference.
Get involved in our Shine a Light on Lung Cancer initiative and raise money for much needed, life changing lung cancer research.
There are a number of ways you can get involved:
Lung cancer has one of the lowest survival rates of any cancer in Australia with just 15 percent of people living five years past their diagnosis. Recent advances in new treatments are providing hope for a number of patients and their families that has never existed before. With your help, more research can increase access to treatments and improve quality of life for people living with this disease, as well as provide hope for a cure.
