Borrowing Words

Last week SW, my sweetie, wrote a great piece for Consano addressing Lung Cancer Awareness.  I thought it was great.  I must share it too!

From Consano Blog:

An Intimate Awareness of Lung Cancer

Author: Spencer Williams
Nov 14, 2013

My grandfather, his fingers yellowed by tobacco from smoking unfiltered Pall Mall cigarettes for more than 50 years, died from a combination of prostate cancer, emphysema, and alcoholism.  He didn’t have lung cancer, but if you pay attention to all of the anti-smoking ads, then you’d think he should have or at least only people like him – old folks who smoked a lot of cigarettes for a lot of years.

I believed the ads. I believed that smokers got lung cancer. I held that belief up until the day my wife was diagnosed with lung cancer.  Read the rest of the post here.

I’ve shared my thoughts on Consano before.  I’m a fan of the concept of crowdfunding for medical research.  To see a list of  their current projects click here.
