Friday letters: Learn more about lung cancer

October 18, 2013 

I’m hoping this letter will raise awareness that during this month of pink and its well-deserved focus on breast cancer, more women die from lung cancer than breast, ovarian and cervical cancer combined.

Lung cancer awareness month is November, so let us remember to inform ourselves — both women and men — about this disease. Information can be found at I write this to honor my friend, Lois Cooper.
