Lung Cancer – The Bias, The Stigma, The Shame, Blame and Guilt | Lung Cancer Foundation of America

Yep.  There is a stigma attached to lung cancer.  And because of that stigma, those with lung cancer don’t get the support or the funding that those with other cancers receive.  It’s really about perception, as the article below will explain, quite eloquently.  So stop judging folks and stop making them feel guilty about a disease that honestly, we can’t rightly say how it was caused.  Environmental factors have a HUGE impact on the health of a person’s lungs.

Please realize that if you can breathe, you can get lung cancer.
