It’s very difficult to watch someone we love slowly die from lung cancer – or any kind of cancer. It’s also hard to watch loved ones puffing on cigarettes and ignoring the harm they are doing to their own bodies.

Every November – which is Lung Cancer Awareness month – the American Lung Association sponsors a free event with the Marshall Cancer Care Center to share information on this leading cause of cancer death among both men and women.

Frankly Speaking About Lung Cancer will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at noon.

Featured speaker is Dr. Jonathan Storey, hematology and oncology physician, who will talk about the latest treatments for lung cancer.
