Self-Awareness of Lung Cancer
The more you know about the disease, the easier it is to support and raise awareness.

Enquire with your local government authorities about their action plan for lung cancer research. Ask the general public to send messages to the authorities. The more people send messages about this type, the more likely it is for them to act on it.
