Jana_W Posted February 22, 2005 Share Posted February 22, 2005 Hi all I need some help and advice. You might be familiar with the difficulties Karen and I have had with our local Cancer Council and it's very unopen approach to anything not conventional. Well, we now have a new fight on our hands. I emailed and spoke with the lady in charge of events at the cancer council to alert her to the fact that November 17th is International Lung Cancer Awareness Day and to ask if the Cancer Council was going to recognise it or do any fundraising activities. The answer is NO! As there are no early screening programs for lung cancer they don't feel that they are in a position to run any campaign as they don't have information to disseminate. Naturally, my sister and I are appalled at this. More people are killed in our state by lung cancer than any other form of cancer, yet they are not even going to acknowledge this day!!! What can we do???????? I would appreciate any advice that can be offerred, as I really don't know where to start. Thanks so much Jana xxxx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
