The Lung Cancer Community Speaks Out

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

During a public meeting at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last month, a lung cancer survivor shared her experience. When she was diagnosed years ago, the first thing her doctor said to her was, “How should we begin your smoking cessation program?”

The woman had never even been a smoker—just like one out of every five people living with lung cancer.

She then pointed out that even if she had been, 60% of people diagnosed with lung cancer have already quit smoking, and many long-time smokers became addicted when they were just teens—and for many, that was before government warnings and stricter laws on advertising

The Cancer Support Launches its Cancer Policy Institute

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Today was a very special day for the Cancer Support Community as we launched the Cancer Policy Institute, an initiative that furthers our organization’s mission to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.

We are excited to take this next step by advocating on behalf of all people impacted by cancer so that the voices of 13.7 million cancer survivors and their families are heard on Capitol Hill and in state and local legislatures across the country. The Cancer Policy Institute will work to move the agenda that comprehensive, quality cancer care integrates medical care and social and emotional care.
