LUNGevity News

Since his 2009 lung cancer diagnosis, Matt Ellefson has become a strong advocate for research, writing regularly to his Congressional representatives about the issues that lung cancer patients face and the lack of research funding.  In this video, Matt, who was the featured speaker at LUNGevity’s October Celebration of Hope Gala in New York, talks about living an active and productive life with advanced lung cancer.

Donations to LUNGevity support translational lung cancer research projects to get the science from the lab to the patient faster. To date, LUNGevity has supported 100 projects at 56 institutions in 23 states.
