National Lung Cancer Partnership was founded by physicians and researchers to support lung cancer research and education. The organization specifically focuses on understanding how the disease affects women differently than men.

"Lung cancer is often perceived as a man's disease, yet it affects tens of thousands of women, and we're very concerned that women seem to be in the dark when it comes to the facts about the disease and its prevalence," said Joan Schiller, MD, president, National Lung Cancer Partnership.  "It is our goal to help women understand and be aware of their risks for lung cancer so they can be the best advocates for their own health."

Awareness among women about lung cancer is low, according to Dr Schiller. In a recent survey by National Lung Cancer Partnership, only 12 percent of women believe they know the symptoms of lung cancer and fewer than 10 percent said they have talked to their doctors about their risk for lung cancer. Only 36 percent of women were aware that lung cancer kills more women each year than breast cancer.
