Lung Cancer Is The Leading Cause of Cancer Death
You can take action today.
Through consistent advocacy efforts, GO2 Foundation (formerly Lung Cancer Alliance) played a vital role in establishing the Lung Cancer Research Program (LCRP) within the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program administered by the Department of Defense – and works actively every year to increase funding. The LCRP is now the largest lung cancer research program – public or private – outside of the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health.
The LCRP is actively conducting clinical trials testing new therapies, including immunotherapies and novel types of precision medicines for patients with specific genetic changes in their lung cancer. To continue addressing this gap in research, Congress must restore funding levels back to $20 Million by 2020.
Contact your representatives today asking them to take action or plan to participate in Virtual Advocacy Action Day on July 23.
