Statistically, lung cancer is the most common cancer that kills more patients than breast, prostate and pancreatic cancers put together in the UK. Reports suggest that approximately 20% of all lung cancers are asymptomatic until it is too late for treatment to work. Lung cancer can affect men, women, young, old, smokers and non-smokers. Such was the case with  Lionette Chandrika Rajendra Patel. Late Lionette Chandrika had led a healthy lifestyle, was a non-smoker, always smiling and caring for all those around her and yet had succumbed to this dreadful disease. In loving memory of the late Lionette Chandrika and in order to raise awareness and to provide further research opportunities in this field  Lions Club of Enfield under the leadership of Lion Jayant Doshi together with Lion Rajendra Patel, his family and well-wishers raised and donated £25,000 to Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation to help Professor Sam Janes at University College London Hospital to continue the very vital research into mass Early Detection of Lung Cancer.
