Back in August I petitioned the Governor, Health Commissioner, Head Epidemiologist and all three of my legislative representatives. Followed up with lots of phone calls and emails.

The Director of Cancer Research was asked to contact me. We have built a rapport of sorts.

The bottom line is November has been proclaimed Lung Cancer Awareness Month in NJ. A copy of the Proclamation was even sent to me from the Governor with the official GOLD STATE SEAL and little blue ribbon. (whoo hoo) Senator Joseph Palaia called me personally to advise me that this had occured and I was responsible, but his main message was that he had been a part of making it happen. This was all right before the elections you know.

Just in case you are interested - there is an Assembly Joint Resolution No.53 on the board (so to speak) that was introduced on 12/16/2002 by Assemblyman Joseph R. Malone, III and Assemblyman Ronald S. Dancer (Co-Sponsored by many other Assemblypersons), to designate November annually as "Lung Cancer Awareness Month" It has just kind of been sitting there - waiting for more push. Perhaps we in NJ could push the newly elected to get this taken care of before next year. I do not really want to badger all those folks again starting next August. :idea:

I'm just a bit frustrated with the whole lack of concern in this state, I'm glad you have some in's. I'm working on it but difficult at times.

thanks for the update, good possibility, I'll be at the Bernie Segal discussion in Newark, thanks for that also.

God bless and stay well
