Lung cancer can affect anyone, but not everyone is listening

Lung cancer can affect anyone, but not everyone is listening

In preparation for Lung Cancer Awareness Month in November, my colleague Liat Kobza and I recently set up a camera and asked six Stanford physicians to share their thoughts about the disease.

We were shocked by what we heard: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death (more than the top four cancer killers combined), and claims the lives of 1.3 million people each year.

What affected us most were not just the staggering numbers, but the fact that this disease gets so little attention.

Please help us share this message: Watch the video and pass it on.
