American Lung Association Applauds Biden’s Efforts to Further Cancer Moonshot; Must End Sale of Menthol Cigarettes to Achieve Goals

This evening during President Biden’s State of the Union address, he discussed the Cancer Moonshot and efforts to significantly decrease cancer deaths in the U.S. Following his address, the American Lung Association’s President and CEO Harold Wimmer issued the following statement:

“The American Lung Association stands with President Biden's Cancer Moonshot goal to defeat cancer as we know it. Through the Cancer Moonshot, President Biden has a goal of preventing more than four million cancer deaths by 2047. Ending cancer as we know it is only achievable if President Biden stands up to the tobacco industry and finalizes the rules to end menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars.”
