Sue Rickards was diagnosed with lung cancer, though she had never smoked. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and Sue’s home was found to have high radon levels.
“The public education and advocacy work that the Lung Association does is critically important both to prevent lung disease and to improve treatment for those living with lung disease.
"Indoor and outdoor air quality is important to all of us who love to take a deep breath. NB Lung works actively with the federal and provincial governments to improve air quality standards which continue to lower the level of air pollutants in our province.
“Love your lungs: Please support this important work.”
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday... #GivingTuesday is coming to Canada on November 27, 2018!
Giving Tuesday is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
This Giving Tuesday, and for all of November, which is Lung Month, we want to remind you to Love Your Lungs!
