To the editor:
November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and pearl is our color.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States among every ethnic group, accounting for one out of every three cancer deaths. It is also the least funded. Lung cancer will kill:
•More people than the next four deadly cancers combined.
•More than three times as many men as prostate cancer.
•Nearly twice as many women as breast cancer.
•An average of 437 people a day.
