What do you think of when someone says lung cancer? Unfortunately, there is a stigma associated with lung cancer that plays a major role in the lung cancer experience for most people facing this disease. Stigma not only affects the patient experience, it negatively impacts every facet of the lung cancer problem, from reduced funding for research to poor quality of life and low survival rate.

Keep these helpful hints from the American Lung Association in mind as you enjoy the budding new season.

Judy Weimer might raise some eyebrows when she says, “Lucy and Ethel gave me a new lease on life.” But she’s not referring to the old, “I Love Lucy” show. “Lucy” and “Ethel” are the names she’s given to the healthy new lungs she received in a double-transplant four years ago. And it’s because of these new lungs that Judy joined other American Lung Association volunteers and advocates to fight fo...

It may be April 1 but this is no joke: e-cigarette companies are using marketing tactics straight out of Big Tobacco’s playbook, including cartoon characters, bright colors and flavors such as grape bubblegum and Atomic Fireball. That’s why today the American Lung Association and our partners sent this letter - http://bit.ly/1gXVX1Z - to President Obama. It’s past time for the Food & Drug A...
