It's Lung Cancer Awareness Month and this year they are focusing on "Making Moments Matter" to give Irish lung cancer patients extra time in their lives when combating the odds and the poor survival rate, just 20% of people will be alive five years after a lung cancer diagnosis.

People impacted directly by lung cancer, were asked to create large glass memento jars with artist Steven Farrell to communicate the stories about the extra moments that matter the most to them.  Henry McKean met them and the Marie Keating Foundation who are behind the "Making Moments Matter" Campaign.

Henry spoke to Mallory Adams who lost her dad to lung cancer, Liz Yeates from the  Marie Keating Foundation and Sasha Hamrogue who lost both parents to lung cancer.
