Lilyâ€™s Light is a partner of Uniting Against Lung Cancer, a national lung cancer research foundation which in just nine years has awarded over $8.5 million in research grants into diagnosis, treatment and a cure for the disease. Lung cancer is the nationâ€™s leading cause of cancer death, but lags behind other cancers in awareness and funding for research.
