Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK, as much as breast, prostate and bowel cancer put together. With less than 4 percent of all funding into cancer research going to this disease we need your support to help us reach our goal of defeating lung cancer. Someone is diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK every 15 minutes, that’s 38,500 new patients every year, with 34,000 deaths a year. Our research into early detection will improve survival rates & we hope to implement a screening programme across the UK. Our Patient Support Network offers those affected by lung cancer a chance to meet others in a similar position and to talk to local lung cancer nurses. We give information on lung cancer support services via our helpline (0333 323 7200) and our patient-focused information books are free of charge to those affected by lung cancer. The stop smoking services we provide give advice and support via Roy Castle Fag Ends. Through our Kids Against Tobacco Smoke and Anti Tobacco Youth Campaign we’re working with young people to prevent them from starting to smoke and educating them on the facts surrounding smoking. We also work hard to influence politicians and decision-makers about lung cancer issues. We need your support to continue all this vital work, your fundraising can make a difference.
