Lung Cancer Canada is proud to announce that Dr. Frances Shepherd, Honorary Board Member of LCC, has been appointed Officer of the Order of Canada for her leadership in improving treatment options and outcomes for individuals with advanced lung cancer. Dr. Shepherd has always been a tremendous supporter of LCC's efforts, and was the Keynote Speaker at LCC's inaugural Evening of Hope in 2011. More importantly, her research has had global impact in advancing lung cancer care and improving survival rates in this disease. She initiated studies that led to life-prolonging treatments in advanced cancer and to increasing the cure rate of lung cancer surgery through preventive chemotherapy.
