Hey everyone!

I'm sorry I haven't posted on here in quite some time, but this post is asking a favor (if that's alright). It shouldn't take too much time.

Hey everyone!

This past June my father passed away due to lung cancer. I stumbled across this website where you can sign a petition that asks the President of The United States to increase funding for lung cancer research.

Here is exactly what is says:

Lung cancer continues to be the single biggest cancer killer. In 2005, an estimated 163,510 will die of lung cancer; more people than breast,
prostate, colon, liver, melanoma, and kidney cancers combined. Few people are even aware that lung cancer kills three times as many men as
prostate cancer, and nearly twice as many women as breast cancer. Prostate cancer has a 99 percent five-year survival rate and breast cancer
has an 88 percent five-year survival rate.

Over 50 percent of new lung cancer cases will be diagnosed at a very late stage – Stage IIIb or IV. Lung cancer has a five-year survival rate of
only 15 percent. That means that 85 percent of people who get lung cancer die within five years.


We, the undersigned, call on the President of the United States and the Congress to make early detection, treatment, and chemoprevention of
lung cancer a national public health priority.

We also call for adequate new funding to increase the overall 5-year survival rate to at least 50 percent by 2010.

And, here is the website:


This is very close to my heart, and although I may not know you and you may not know anyone with lung cancer, think of how many lives you could save if this goes through. In the end, it could mean your own life.


Keep up the fight and be strong.


Hey everyone, I am so sorry, I know I haven't been a member long, and I posted about a week Hiatus about 5 weeks ago. I love the community but life is just consuing too much of me right now, so I am leaving all my communities, hopefully I'll be able to reapply again in the fall. Sorry again, you are all wonderful, and I do hope I can come back.
