Which Cancers get the least Research Funding?

In looking which cancers get funding for research and which get less, it turns out that many of the most common or deadliest cancers receive the least research funding from nonprofits, a new study finds.  Cancers such as breast, leukemia and lymphoma as well as pediatric cancers are well funded, unfortunately, they found that colon, endometrial, liver and bile duct, cervical, ovarian, pancreatic and lung cancers were all poorly funded compared to how common they are and how many deaths they cause.


Should we filter more money to research for those cancers?  Should we raise more money for the cause?  What are your ideas for this?
