BENEFITING: LUNG CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 23, 2011
Help me raise money and awareness for Lung Cancer as me and some friends participate in the NJ State Triathlon this Saturday, July 23! This is in honor of my Mom, Rosey, and all those who have lost family and friends to this awful disease. Thanks for the support!
Here are some facts:
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States among every ethnic group... 1 in every 3 cancer deaths.
Lung cancer will kill:
- More people than the next four deadly cancers... combined.
- Over three times as many men as prostate cancer.
- Nearly twice as many women as breast cancer.
- An average of 437 people a day.
Over 60% of new cases are never smokers or former smokers, many of whom quit decades ago.
