2020 Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Every year in November, people come together to recognize and raise awareness of the challenges that come from a diagnosis of lung cancer. It is through this recognition that individuals and groups have helped to make a difference for lung cancer patients, caregivers, family and friends. Special events and fundraisers are just some of the ways that communities are coming together to help support patients and raise awareness.
