Thank you!

We all have a stake in the future of lung cancer and need to take leadership rolls to join the movement of erasing the stigma of lung cancer with advocacy to create an envisionment that eliminates the fact that annually over 200,000 people are being diagnosed with the greatest cancer killer of all—lung cancer. Early detection is a powerful advantage and a proven successful strategy in long-term survival and overcoming lung cancer. Low dose CT scans screening for lung cancer are available for long-time heavy smokers but should also be available for individuals exposed to elevated levels of radioactive radon gas as well. Smoking and exposure to radon gas are the leading causes of

lung cancer.

Preventive care is critical in the journey of visualizing a future when lung cancer is no longer the greatest cancer kill of both men and women.

The impact of federal funding and collaborating with federal and state legislators for radon awareness and reduction policies and research advancements will help save lives. Become a catalyst for change; influence your legislators to test our schools for radon and appeal to Congress for a commitment to increase the funding for lung cancer research.

Sincere thanks to Congressional champions like Rick Nolan of Minnesota and Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey for support in research funding.

Much thanks to the Interior, Environment, and Related Agency House Subcommittee members Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson; Ohio Rep. David Joyce; Maine Rep. Chellie Pingree; New York Rep. José Serrano; Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley; New Jersey Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman; Michigan Rep.Brenda Lawrence; Utah Rep. Chris Stewart; Nevada Rep. Mark Amodei;Washington Rep. Derek Kilmer;and Minnesota Chairperson Betty McCollum for the continuing funding of the State Indoor Radon Grants. Much more needs to be achieved on the state and federal levels, and we are very thankful for your continued support in helping to save lives.
