The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the ONLY charity in the UK wholly dedicated to defeating lung cancer.
This is what we do…
Fund research into the early diagnosis of the disease
Provide support to patients and their families
Help people to quit smoking and providing anti-smoking education for children and young people
Give a voice to those affected by lung cancer through our campaigning work
This is why we exist…
You are just as likely to die from lung cancer today as you were if you were diagnosed forty years ago (3.2% in the early 1970s to 5.3% in 2007).
Lung cancer is the UK’s biggest cancer killer, with almost 35,000 people dying every year – that’s one person every 15 minutes.
Each year, around 39,750 people are diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK, that’s 109 people every day.
It is known as the Cinderella Cancer as less than 5% of all funding is invested in research into lung cancer.
