Hundreds are expected to march in Wellington this morning calling on the government to fund more lung cancer medications. Lung cancer is New Zealand's biggest killer - more people die from lung cancer every year than breast cancer, prostate cancer and melanoma combined. The peitition will be presented alongside other petitions from several patient advocacy groups signed by more than 21,000 people. Indira Stewart speaks to Philip Hope, the CEO of Lung Foundation NZ.
