Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. This year, an estimated 224,210 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer and over 159,260 will die of the disease. Lung cancer accounts for about 14 percent of all new cancer diagnoses and 27 percent of all cancer deaths. Smoking is the most important risk factor for lung cancer.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation has commissioned a series of Public Service Announcements (PSAs) designed to entertain while raising awareness about preventable cancers. “Good Old Days” focuses on lung cancer, not satisfied with continuing to be a leading cause of cancer death, she wants a return to the days when there were more smokers and second hand smoke was everywhere.
