November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month
The death toll from lung cancer is really bad. Research shows cigarette smokers are up to 20 times more likely to develop lung cancers than people who have never smoked. According to the National Cancer Institute, an estimated 86,220 men and 71,080 women will die from lung cancer this year.

If you, or someone you know, smokes, now is a good opportunity to think about quitting. The folks at Legacy have developed www.BecomeAnEx.org to help. No matter what age you are, quitting smoking is one of the most important lifestyle changes a person can make to improve and extend their life. It’s never too late.
www.BecomeAnEX.org gives smokers the resources and methods that have been proven to
increase smokers’ chances of quitting successfully. And, it’s all free.
