Being run by lung cancer organisation, Free to Breathe, it will be an opportunity for anyone with lung cancer, people affected by the disease, those caring for people with it, or just with general questions on the condition to come to a safe space and ask absolutely anything.

Two US lung cancer experts will be on hand to answer your questions:

  • Adam Marcus is an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Hematology and Oncology at Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA, a former Georgia Cancer Coalition Scholar, and directs a federally funded cancer research laboratory. His research focuses on understanding how cancer cells become malignant, with the goal of developing new treatments that could help stop the spread of cancer.
  • Suresh Ramalingam is the Chief of Thoracic Oncology at Winship Cancer Institute, GA (Georgia). Suresh leads a multi-disciplinary team for the treatment of lung cancer and is a well-known specialist in thoracic oncology.

Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, with nearly 1,825,000 new cases diagnosed in 2012, which is 13 per cent of total cancers. In the US 158,000 people die every year from it.

We are delighted to be hosting our first ever AMA session on such an important topic and we hope you will join us and Free to Breathe on Wednesday 16 November.

November is lung cancer awareness month. There are many causes of the disease, but essentially anyone with lungs can get it. Please share the AMA date on Facebook and Twitter – let’s ensure everyone with or affected by lung cancer has the support they need.  

The AMA will take place on the Free to Breathe community on HealthUnlocked.
