According to the latest American Cancer Society report, lung cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer for men and women in the U.S. and the leading cause of cancer death, accounting for more deaths than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer knows no bounds –
it strikes smokers, never-smokers, men, women and all races – and will cut short the lives of nearly 160,000 Americans this year alone.
While these statistics are a reminder of the severity of the disease, advances in lung cancer treatments are helping change the outcome for some patients. These patients are inspiring others by defying the odds every day as they live with advanced lung cancer.
In recognition of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, speak to an internationally renowned oncologist and two active lung cancer survivors. One survivor has lived with stage IV lung cancer for seven years, a feat that is nearly unprecedented, and continues to care for her large family. The other survivor was placed on disability because of his diagnosis, but considered himself “too young to retire” and relished being able to return to work full-time six months later.
