The Irish Cancer Society is running a two-week campaign to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of lung cancer and to encourage those concerned about lung cancer, especially smokers and ex-smokers to call the Irish Cancer Society’s National Cancer Helpline on Freefone 1800 200 700. With early detection, there is a very real chance of a cure from the disease.
