Health Update with Michele Gaguski
240,000 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year, and today, a local organization held a 5K to raise awareness.
The Every Breath Counts Foundation hosted the event in Ocean City today.
Statistics say that of the 240,000 diagnosed with lung cancer this year, 60,000 will die.
80 percent of those diagnosed are never or non –smoker, says Jamila Glapion.
“We need to erase the stigma that lung cancer is just a smoker’s cancer and let people know that it affects everybody and that it’s environmental, it’s radon in their homes, it’s particulate matter in the air, the water that we drink, the air that we breathe, it’s not just smoke.”
The Every Breath Counts Foundation says that their goal is to raise awareness and funding for lung cancer research and support programs around the area.
