Lung Cancer Alliance’s Campaign to End the Stigma of Lung Cancer

Although these ads have been around for a while, I thought it would be nice to share again since there is still a struggle to “de-stigmatize” lung cancer.

Lung cancer is a complicated disease; the two main types of lung cancer are Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC). NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer, making up 80-85% of all cases, and typically grows and spreads more slowly than small cell lung cancer. SCLC makes up 15-20% of all lung cancer cases. It is a fast-growing cancer that spreads rapidly to other parts of the body. To read more about NSCLC and SCLC, click here.

Many people believe that if you have lung cancer, you did something to deserve it. What they don’t know is that lung cancer doesn’t discriminate; even non-smokers can get lung cancer. Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer, claiming more lives than colon, breast, and prostate cancer combined, but is the least funded.

Some facts about lung cancer from jillslegacy.org:

  • 80% of newly diagnosed lung cancer patients either never smoked or quit smoking decades ago.
  • Every three minutes another person is diagnosed with lung cancer.
  • The underfunding of lung cancer has kept its survival rate as low as it was in 1971.
  • Lung cancer will not end or be cured if everyone quit smoking right now.

ANNOUNCEMENT: YLI Youth of Color Forum on Thu August 22, 2013

The Youth Leadership Institute and YO! Mateo would like to invite youth of color to a unique community event:

 

  • FREE food, drinks and giveaways.
  • YO! Mateo Are We Sweet Enough? is holding a community forum for youth of color to discuss the new Sugar Sweetened Beverage (SSB) tax in San Mateo County. This issue is more than a health equity problem, but one of racial justice. The tax is meant to help prevent diabetes and obesity but in doing so will financially impact working class families and youth of color. Therefore, this community forum is a place for youth to voice their support, questions, and concerns.

WHY ATTEND?

  • This community forum is the first of its kind where youth of color have been asked to VOICE their opinion on a local tax.
  • Youth participants who are involved will be able to influence decisions local government makes and ultimately impact the communities they live in.
  • Represent an unheard voice in our community.

WHEN and WHERE?

  • Thursday, August 22, 2013 (5:00-6:30PM)
  • 387 Grand Ave. South San Francisco, CA 94080
  • Dinner is provided.

RSVP

  • Respond by Monday, August 19th, 2013
