Frightening statistics

The following information I found on the lungaware website. I found it very frightening

Lung cancer in women

Monday, December 12, 2005

Lung cancer causes tremendous suffering and kills 165,000 people every year, more than any other single cancer. It takes a greater toll on women than breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer combined. Lung cancer hasn't inspired much activism or advocacy because its often viewed as a condition that smokers bring on themselves. But no one is immune.

I always thought my family would immuneune to this horrible disease. After all we lived a fairly healthy lifestyle and nobody smoked or was exposed to smoking. I hope that all people who read this blog and who has a long term cough or any other symptoms (Laurianne's was asthma symptoms and wheezing) to have it checked out by a doctor. If it can prevent for one person not to have to the same suffering as Laurianne it is worth this blog
