On November 2, 2013, AABANY's members and friends will be walking in BREATHE DEEP NYC's Run/Walk in Hudson River Park in honor of an AABANY member (non-smoker) that was recently diagnosed with Lung Cancer.
- Never have Smokers with lung cancer been more likely to be female (in particular Asian), have adenocarcinoma, and have the EGFR genetic mutation.
- Although Americans/Pacific Islanders have the lowest incidence of cancer among all ethnic groups, the incidence of lung cancer is still substantial.
- Lung cancer is the number-one cancer killer among Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders.
- Compared to other cancer mortality rates, lung cancer is strikingly higher for both women and men of Asian-American/Pacific Island descent.
Proceeds from this event will benefit LUNGevity Foundation, the leading private provider of research funding for lung cancer.
