Faces of Lung Cancer

The Kentucky Cancer Program developed a photo exhibit in collaboration with District Cancer Councils and honoring Kentuckians whose lives have been touched by lung cancer. The exhibit is used to spread the message that lung cancer screening can save lives and the importance of not using tobacco. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among Kentuckians, but it is highly preventable.

"Faces of Lung Cancer," the exhibit includes photos and brief personal statements from nine survivors in Northern, Central, and Eastern Kentucky area development districts. Photographer Tim Webb donated his time to take the pictures. The exhibit consists of:

  • Nine framed 12" x 18" laminated foam core panels, each with a photo of a survivor or family member of someone lost to lung cancer, and quote about his or her cancer experience.
  • An 18" x 10" title panel that reads: Faces of Lung Cancer / Presented by the Kentucky Cancer Program and Your Local District Cancer Council.
  • Eleven lightweight easels that can be set up as free-standing or desktop. Ten easels are for the photos and one is for the title panel. In addition, each photo has a hanger.
  • A table top display with educational information about lung cancer and screening.
