Shine a Light on Lung Cancer Research Funding in November
November is International Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Lung Foundation Australia (LFA) is once again holding the Shine a Light campaign. The initiative encourages people to host a Shine a Light lung cancer awareness event within their community and this year LFA is shining a light on the inequalities in lung cancer research funding.
In Australia, only 5% of tumour specific research funding is allocated to lung cancer and mesothelioma – yet more Australians die from lung cancer than any other cancer.
LFA’s Shine a Light events bring together survivors, patients, their family and friends, health professionals, clinicians and researchers as one resilient voice to support more research funding and earlier diagnosis of lung cancer.
