Lung cancer is the UK’s biggest cancer killer. It kills more people than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancers combined. Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is the only UK charity solely dedicated to supporting everyone affected by lung cancer. The charity also funds life-saving research to improve early detections, campaigns for access to life-lengthening treatments and challenges the dangerous misconceptions surrounding the disease.
