Most people don’t realize that lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer among both men and women, across every ethnic group. Raise awareness among your community by sharing these fact graphics in a social media post. Don’t forget to use #SaveHerLungs and #GO2Summit19 to contribute to the broader social media conversation.
Support Critical Legislation
We know that lung cancer impacts women differently than men, but we don’t know why. This critical women’s health imperative is now a national priority through the Women and Lung Cancer Research and Preventive Services Act, but we need your help to make sure your elected officials are on board!
