I decided to place an ad in the high school yearbook this year. I really feel strongly about trying to make an impact with our kids to keep them from smoking. The text portion is below. The graphics include a lung in the background, the lc ribbon, the website logos, etc. Here is the text portion:

Smoking Kills!

Save a Life—Yours

Stop Now While You Have Your Whole Life In Front of You

Lung Cancer Statistics:

• 1 in 10 smokers will get lung cancer in their lifetime

• 173,000 are diagnosed each year in the U. S.

• #1 cancer killer in both men and women, killing over 160,000 annually

• Kills more than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined

• Less than 15% survive more than five years from diagnosis

If you know someone battling this disease, you can get information & support at the locations listed below:

I think it's fantastic. Lung Cancer is a real problem from many sides. We center here on support, research and a cure for those already diagnosed but before anyone is diagnosed, AWARENESS is key.

Prevention and smoking cessation is extremely important.

Good Job Tina!
