November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Contact us for a free "Hope for the Cure" pin

As noted in our recent newsletter, the Doran & Murphy Express, November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Let us know what you are doing to bring awareness to this disease – you might end up featured in the next edition of our newsletter!

Here are some helpful links:

Lung Cancer Alliance – Shine a Light on Lung Cancer – Tuesday, November 1, 2011 – This international vigil is intended to raise money and awareness for lung cancer. Join a vigil (there are vigils registered in Buffalo, Syracuse, Binghamton, Scranton, Pittsburgh, Hershey, Cincinnati, Marysville, Bloomfield, Edgewood and Gainesville) or start one in your own area.

American Cancer Society – Great American Smokeout – November 17, 2011 – Asbestos exposure is a big risk factor for lung cancer. When asbestos exposure is combined with tobacco smoke there is a synergistic effect. This means that the resulting risk when asbestos and tobacco smoke are combined is much greater than if you just add the risks together.

Choose Hope – If you would like to get lung cancer ribbons, t-shirts, magnets and other products to show your support, this site donates to cancer research facilities across the country.

If you are a railroad worker (active or retired) with lung cancer, a railroader who is a cancer survivor, the spouse, parent or child of a railroader who has had lung cancer, give us a call at 1-800-374-2144 for a free “Hope for the Cure” lung cancer awareness pin and a copy of the Fall/Winter 2011 edition of the Doran & Murphy Express.
