Closing the Funding Gap in Cancer Research

Lung cancer claims more lives each year than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined, yet lung cancer receives disproportionately less government funding per cancer death than other types of cancer.

This fact means that private funding for lung cancer research that is focused on finding a cure is vital to saving lives. A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation raises funds to support outreach and A Breath of Hope Research Fellows, America’s most promising young researchers who have been identified through a national RFP process. Retaining young talent in the field of lung cancer research is critical to changing outcomes. Please join us, your donations will help us beat lung cancer!
