Yes, sometimes people do ask me if she smoked.
But all that matters is that I loved her.

Madeleine Loudon

Don’t ask whether Madeleine’s nanny smoked. To the young girl grieving the loss of her beloved grandmother, the answer doesn’t matter. Besides, there are bigger questions we need to ask – like why most lung cancer is diagnosed too late, and why families like the Loudons have to say goodbye to their loved ones too soon. 

You can help change the conversation from blame and shame to one that gives people living with lung cancer a fighting chance. Donations are urgently needed for lung cancer research. Your support will fund an innovative joint study by the Lung Health Foundation and Lung Cancer Canada aimed at ending the stigma that kills.
