Hope and Challenges for Lung Cancer Today

Lung cancer is the biggest cause of cancer cases and deaths in Canada. More Canadians die of lung cancer than colorectal, pancreatic and breast cancers combined. However, with recent advances in screening, care and treatments, there is now hope for Canadians who are diagnosed with lung cancer.

On the occasion of lung cancer awareness month, Dr. Stephanie Snow (Lung Cancer Canada), John-Peter Bradford (Life-Saving Therapies Network) and Andrea Redway (lung cancer patient) joined join Bill VanGorder (CARP) for a closer look at progress recently made in cancer care and treatments as well as outstanding challenges that need to be addressed to ensure the best possible care for Canadians.
