Target demographics: The milions living with or at risk for lung cancer

Direct beneficiaries per year: At least 12,000

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Host or join a Shine A Light on Lung Cancer Vigil in your community to raise awareness and provide hope, compassion and support for all those impacted.

Geographic areas served: Nationwide

Programs: Community& Support Services Program:
Providing free, one-on-one support, information, and referrals to patients, at risk individuals and their loved ones through telephone and online support services, delivering customized education packets to make informed decisions and improve outcomes.

Education Program:
Conducting national awareness campaigns, including No One Deserves to Die, National Shine A Light on Lung Cancer Vigil, Team Lung Love and Give A Scan to educate the public about the facts, dispel myths, and share calls to action to eliminate stigma, increase research funding and save lives.

Health Policy Program:
Advocating for multiple millions in public health dollars for lung cancer research and early detection through a nationwide grassroots network of volunteer chapters, advocates and targeted policy strategies.

Mission:
Ending injustice and saving lives through an alliance of advocacy, education and support.
Results:
Over the past year, more than 12,000 personal telephone calls and email requests were managed by our professional and caring staff, delivering customized support packets to improve outcomes. We also expanded a network of 1,500 medical facility contacts nationwide who share our educational support materials to the newly diagnosed and their loved ones so that they know they are not alone and we are here to help.

We launched efforts to educate the millions at high risk about their life-saving options, encouraging conversations with their doctors about early detection. To date, more than 100 medical facilities have joined our coalition to make sure that screening is done right and well at centers of excellence across the U.S.

We have trained thousands of advocates to educate elected and public health officials about the disease, securing almost $70 million to date in public health dollars for research and early detection. Because we do not accept public funding, and these dollars fund research directly, we are able to leverage your support at least 10-fold.

We also launched the first nationwide awareness campaign addressing the stigma of lung cancer head-on. With more than 300 million impressions to date, the campaign continues to grow over social media channels. Learm more at: www.NoOneDeservesToDie.org.

These combined efforts will help meet our vision of reducing lives lost to lung cancer by half by 2020. With your continued help and support, we will achieve this realistic and attainable goal.

Being a survivor myself, I know how important it is to talk to people who have already traveled the road that many are traveling now. I love being a "Phone Buddy" and hope that I give some encouragement to those I talk too. I don't fool myself that everyone will have the same outcome I did (8 ... more »
