When it comes to lung cancer, there is a belief that it only affects certain people. The reality is, though, lung cancer is a disease which can affect anyone.

 

LikeMe looks to challenge the misconceptions around lung cancer, increase awareness and improve early detection.

 

Initially focusing on women under 50, LikeMe is a stark reminder that no one is immune from this disease. It can affect people like you. It can affect people like me.

“GPs haven’t really heard of my type of lung cancer. I am a GP in the army and none of my colleagues have heard of that kind of lung cancer.”

Lung cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in women aged 25-49.

Those under 50 are more likely to be diagnosed at late stage when curative treatment is no longer an option.

“Lung cancer was never ever considered or talked about. Even once they spotted there was something in my lung, they still checked my ovaries and my breasts first.”

“It was probably nine months from me first going to the doctor, and possibly a year from having this cough, before I was diagnosed.”

“As treatments have gone on, I think people think I’m cured because I look so well. I have to remind them I still have lung cancer but that could change.”
