Velindre Cancer Centre launched the Stepping Stones Appeal, a lung cancer research programme, to both increase awareness of their work, and to raise the money necessary to continue to fund and expand their research programmes.
There are nearly 2,200 people diagnosed with lung cancer in Wales each year, with an increasing number who have never smoked. Many people are surviving cancer than ever before thanks to early detection and better treatment. Although lung cancer is the most common form of cancer death in Wales, lung cancer research has been relatively poorly supported compared to other higher profile forms of cancer. It is estimated by 2015 there will be a 30% increase in the most common forms of cancer in Wales.
