Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States, killing more people than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. Yet it receives less federal research funding per patient than those cancers. This month Cancer Research And Biostatistics (CRAB) is raising awareness for lung cancer and encouraging everyone to learn more about this devastating disease.

Cancer Research And Biostatistics (CRAB) works on cancer research studies aimed at improving the quality of life and outcomes for those living with lung cancer. One such undertaking is the activation of the NCTN built LUNGMAP study. A collaborative effort that CRAB works on as part of the SWOG Cancer Research Network SDMC. We also work on many other great Lung studies through SWOG! CRAB’s long-standing collaboration with the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) and the Staging and Prognostic Factors Committee (SPFC) continues dedicated to this important work.

Join us in highlighting #LCAM this November. Let’s spread the word and drive research that enhances the lives of those impacted by cancer. To learn more about LUNGMAP cancer clinical trial, please visit:
