While cutting-edge research is inspiring hope for hundreds of thousands facing this disease, lung cancer is the number one cancer killer, claiming more lives than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. This kick-off event features two panel discussions, followed by a question and answer session.

To complement the kick-off event, lung cancer advocates will hold a rally on the U.S. Capitol grounds on Thursday, November 2, 2017 as a visual representation of the 433 lives lost to lung cancer each day and to draw attention to the need for more awareness and research funding.
