Lung Cancer Awareness Month (LCAM)

The Lung Cancer Awareness Month Coalition is a global coalition of organizations that work to improve lung cancer outcomes. Each year, during the month of November, we raise our collective voice to amplify awareness about lung cancer.

By educating others about lung cancer, we hope to create awareness about the many gaps and barriers that lead to late diagnoses and poor outcomes, increased funding for research, and a stronger push for new screening and treatment options around the world.

The City of Minneapolis has proclaimed November ‘A Breath of Hope Lung Cancer Awareness Month in the city of Minneapolis’ and many buildings will ‘white out’ the evening of the A Breath of Hope Shining Bright Gala – November 12.

Learn more and join us at one of our five LCAM events in November!
