LCC Annual Events
Lung Cancer Connection is committed to promoting education and awareness about lung cancer issues in St. Louis, Missouri, and throughout the world.
Since 2009, LCC has hosted an annual walk fundraiser during the month of November, in recognition of Lung Cancer Awareness Month. This event has quickly become St. Louis's largest and most successful effort to build awareness of this terrible disease and to show love and support for patients. More than 300 people registered for the 2013 Walk, which was held at Forest Park.
Lung Cancer Information Seminar
Although lung cancer is America's number one cancer killer, with over 1,500 new cases diagnosed in the greater St. Louis area each year, very little information about treatment and emotional support is available to patients and their families.
In an effort to fill the void of information and assistance, each year Lung Cancer Connection holds a free seminar that's open to lung cancer survivors, as well as medical professionals and the general public. The event, which features renowned lung cancer experts, is always a great opportunity for lung cancer patients to gain valuable insight into their medical issues, and network with others who face similar challenges.
