In early 2018, Ruth Strauss, wife of former England Cricket Captain Sir Andrew Strauss, was diagnosed with a non-smokers lung cancer. Ruth died in December 2018; she was 46 years old and mother to two children, then aged 10 and 13.

In her memory, Sir Andrew set up the Ruth Strauss Foundation, with two important missions: to help families with a child facing the death of a parent through professional emotional support and to raise awareness of the need for more research and collaboration in the fight against non-smoking lung cancers.
