Mission Statement

Lung Cancer Circle of Hope is dedicated to eradicating the myths surrounding lung cancer by educating the public, health officials and public policy makers through educational symposiums througout the state of New Jersey.

Description

Lung Cancer is the #1 cancer killer of men and women and it is the least funded in proportion to the mortality rate. As there are no approved early detection protocols our aim is to provide information about this disease. While smoking is the #1 cause it is not the only cause of lung cancer. Our goals are also to remove the stigma associated with this disease, namely that it's only for smokers. My late mother was originally misdiagnosed because she did not meet the profile, namely she was not a smoker - her situtation was not an anomaly. Smoker or not, no one deserves to die of this disease - besides smoking is an addiction and should be treated as such. By working with hospitals and communities groups we intend to provide information so that early detection, when a tumor is resectable and therefore curable, can more readily occur
