Don't worry about being in shape or even being a runner to do this fund raiser. ~ The thing you need most is a loving heart.~
Surprisingly, Lung Cancer does not get the support it deserves. You don't have to be a smoker to get lung cancer.
Lung Cancer is out there and it is a killer.
People that shouldn't even have Lung Cancer die from Lung Cancer everyday . Did you know: Lung cancer remains the leading cancer killer in men and women in the Uniting States among every ethnic group, yet still receives the fewest research dollars. Lung cancer causes 1 in every 3 cancer deaths and took 156,940 lives in 2010.
Let me repeat that. . . Lung Cancer Kills more people in the United States then any other cancer. . . and receives the fewest dollars.
I wonder. . . how could that be?
Is it because smoking and Lung Cancer have a stigma?
Did you know ~ Over 60% of new lung cancer cases are never smokers or former smokers, many of whom quit decades ago. One in five women and one in twelve men diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked.
These are hard the facts:
We know these hard, cold fact personally. Lung Cancer hit our family like a fright train six years ago. Lung Cancer killed our father. Lung Cancer killed my mothers husband of 56 years. Lung Cancer changed our lives. Lung Cancer burned a whole in our hearts.
My father never smoked. He never lived with smokers. He exercise everyday of his life. He even exercised in bed when he couldn't get up anymore because the lung cancer took over his body.
Don't think just because you live a healthy life style you won't be affected. Lung Cancer doesn't care. Anyone can get lung cancer.
