Throughout the month of November, the Lung Cancer Initiative (LCI) seeks to provide opportunities for lung cancer education in our community, to raise awareness and combat the stigma of lung cancer as part of the internationally recognized Lung Cancer Awareness Month 2021. We'd like to give a special thank you to G1 Therapeutics for sponsoring LCI for LCAM 2021!

Thank You to Our Corporate Partner


LCI is a partner in the The Lung Cancer Awareness Month Coalition, a group of leading international research and advocacy organizations that partner each November in an effort to improve outcomes for lung cancer patients across the world. The Coalition seeks to educate patients and physicians about effective risk reduction and treatment options, while inspiring hope and achieving better results for patients in the process. Most of all, the Coalition strives to debunk the unfair assumptions and stigma associated with lung cancer by better educating the public on the disease and its causes.
