"I found out about the campaign through the Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House," said Kari Jo Crabtree, Bereavement Coordinator Peachtree Hospice.
Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer in the world killing more people every year than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. And Fort Smith sits on the border between two of the top 10 states for both mortality and diagnosis. Fortunately, it is also highly preventable, which means that together we can make an impact!
Learn how on how your organization can get involved and raise awareness during November through the WHITE OUT LUNG CANCER 2012 campaign. Please see attached media release and printable pledge cards from the Donald W. Reynolds Cancer Support House in collaboration with the Fort Smith Chamber of Commerce Health Division.
