As I was doing some research for another story I came across this…..these numbers did not change since 2005/2006 through now…actually, the funding for lung cancer was reduced by approximately$ 300,ooo even as the numbers of those diagnosed and dying of the disease increased.  (http://www.pancreaticalliance.org/docs/ncispending.htm )

Just thought I’d share this little tidbit about my irritation at our US government and their funding priorities when it comes to cancer research!
