Denis’s brother Michel has lung cancer. It could just as easily be your friend, mother, brother or neighbour. Let’s start giving lung cancer a fair go.

Since Michel’s diagnosis, both he and Denis have been surprised by the stigma surrounding the disease. Too often, the first thing family and friends ask when hearing of Michel’s lung cancer, is “did he smoke?”

Denis is part of this campaign at the request of his brother. He wants people to understand that no one deserves lung cancer, it’s simply “the luck of the draw”.

They caught it at the right time. Had they left it even three months later he could have died, or it would have spread throughout his whole body.
