November is our month. We need to add something to our advocacy agenda--low dose screening. We know that lung cancer found early is lung cancer treated successfully and extended life. Low dose CT scans find lung cancer early. But, did you know that only about 2%* of people eligible for low dose screening actually get screened? Only 2-percent! If you are on this forum, you understand the devastation of late-stage diagnosis. You are living the treatment mayhem. We need to rise up as a community and scream "Get Screened". We need to move the dismal 2% number dramatically. Early finds mean easier treatments and extended life. Let's start screaming! Stay the course.
