Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among all Americans – more than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. And, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths for Hispanic men and the second leading cause of death for Hispanic women – many of whom are younger and sicker when diagnosed.
Yet, lung cancer remains the forgotten cancer due in part to a five-year survival rate of only 15%, which means there are few survivors to stand up and speak out. And, there is also the stigma associated with lung cancer – that only those who smoke will get the disease, so in some way they are responsible for their illness. The truth is that 65 percent of lung cancer patients either never smoked or quit smoking years ago.
