Sue Rickards was diagnosed with lung cancer, though she had never smoked. Radon gas is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and Sue's home was found to have high levels of radon.
"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."
