The Digital Fight Against Lung Cancer

Why are we so focused on disseminating lung cancer information through digital resources? First and foremost, we have been in your shoes. Lung Cancer Research Council was started by volunteers who have been diagnosed with lung cancer and know what it’s like to search for answers. We want to be the resource we never had – a resource upon which you can rely. As a digital resource, we can be there for you 24/7.

The Lung Cancer Research Council aspires to become the authority on lung cancer screening research and new developments in lung cancer screening technology. In addition to raising awareness and helping patients with lung cancer find valuable information, we see this site as a life-saving research tool.
