On Thursday 28th May we took a trip down memory lane to the 1990s where it all began for us as a charity. Thousands of you joined our fantastic host, Pat Sharp from hit 90s show FunHouse, for some 90s fun and nostalgia whilst supporting people living with lung cancer.

People with lung cancer need us more than ever. They are at the highest risk of serious illness if they contract COVID-19. In addition, many are faced with the realistic prospect that their life-lengthening treatment may be postponed and some genuinely believe they will never see their loved ones in person again. This is understandably creating high levels of anxiety, worry and fear.
Calls to our Ask the Nurse service have increased by 56% whilst our new Keep in Touch Support Service is ensuring the most socially isolated are not overlooked or forgotten, people like Brian:
“Hearing from this service is a great relief for me. It’s as helpful as any part of the NHS. It’s great hearing from you every week. I look forward to it.”Brian, living with lung cancer
We were the first UK charity solely dedicated to lung cancer and, 30 years on, we remain the only UK charity solely dedicated in supporting everyone affected by the disease.
But we cannot do it alone.
When the charity began in 1990, it was in the face of opposition, the face of negativity, the face of hopelessness. Thankfully, with your help and the help of so many people, not least Roy Castle, much has changed in the last 30 years.
When we started, lung cancer was bottom of the pile. It’s now receiving the second highest amount of research funding. One-year survival rates have more than doubled, and we are on the brink of implementing a national lung cancer screening programme, which could save thousands of lives.
But there is still so much more to do and, as the current situation proves, the need for our charity is imperative.
Please make your quiz donation today and invite all your family and friends to join you.
And, as Roy would say, dedication is the name of the game.
