Back in 1990 when the charity was established, we were the first UK charity solely dedicated to lung cancer and, 30 years on, we remain the only UK charity solely dedicated in supporting everyone affected by the disease.

Over the past 30 years together we have:

Funded over £30 million in lung cancer research

Lay the groundwork for lung cancer screening

Funded the first ever lung cancer nurse specialist

Performed the first ever lung cancer keyhole surgery

Instigated and implemented the ban on smoking in public places and smoking in cars

Helped thousands of people to stop smoking

Funded and built the first lung cancer research centre in the UK

Campaigned for life-lengthening treatments

Raised awareness of lung cancer, challenged the misconceptions around the disease and improved attitudes

Provided emotional, practical and financial support for thousands and thousands of people diagnosed and living with lung cancer.

But there is still so much more to do and, as the current situation proves, the need for our charity is imperative. People with lung cancer are at the highest risk of serious illness if they contract COVID-19. In addition to this, many are faced with the very realistic prospect that their treatment may be postponed. This is understandably creating high levels anxiety and worry.

As a result, calls to our Ask the nurse service have increased by 56% whilst our latest service our Keep in Touch Support Service is ensuring the most socially isolated are not overlooked or forgotten.

People with lung cancer need us more than ever but, in order to give that, we need support too.

About the charity

We are the only UK lung cancer charity dedicated to helping everyone affected by the disease. We fund essential research and provide much needed support, information and advice. We raise awareness and challenge the misconceptions of lung cancer. We do all this so those affected can expect better.
