Lung cancer is the UK's biggest cancer killer. It can affect anyone - young and old, men and women, smokers and non smokers, ordinary blokes and Olympians.
"People don't truly understand what it is like for lung cancer patients. It is hard to articulate why we feel so differently but it is largely due to the disease's stigma and therefore we don't talk about it enough. Please help us this month by sharing our stories and raising awareness."
