This was originally posted in the General Forum today, but I have moved it to the correct forum. Some of you already know that we linked to this petition for several months.


Below is an excerpt from a post by Lori Monroe who is a member of the BAC ListServe:

our voices can be heard.....

I am part of WALC, Women Against Lung Cancer, a group started by Joan Schiller from Univ. of Wisc.

They now have a web site www.4WALC.org

On the web site is a petition for more attention and support for LC research. It will be given to the President, Senators and Representatives. Please take the time to sign the petition and circulate to all of your family, friends and loved ones.

Lori goes on to say that if people want to run copies and circulate them at work, church, any places in their communities, they can mail the signed petitions to:
