CVS/pharmacy partners with lung association

Posted 6/9/14

WOONSOCKET – CVS/pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Caremark Corp., recently launched an in-store fundraising campaign to help fight the number one cancer killer of women: lung cancer.

Funds raised through the campaign will benefit Lung Force, a new initiative to make lung cancer in women a public health priority, drive policy change and increase research funding.

Through June 29, CVS/pharmacy customers will have the opportunity to contribute to Lung Force at the register in stores nationwide or online at www.cvs.com/lung with all proceeds going to support the charity.

According to the American Lung Association, women's awareness of lung cancer's impact is minimal. Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer of women, yet only one percent of women cite it as a cancer that is top-of-mind. Hundreds of thousands of women are affected by lung cancer every year, and two-thirds of lung cancer cases are in those who have never smoked or have successfully quit smoking. The study also revealed 78 percent of women are not aware that lung cancer has killed more women than breast cancer since 1987.
