San Carlos, Calif. (April 7, 2014) – The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) today released the third in a series of Public Service Announcements featuring well-known celebrities to raise awareness for the nation’s number one cancer killer. Film director and actress Penny Marshall, who is a lung cancer survivor, is featured in the new 30-second PSA.
