It's lung cancer awareness month and Ascension Genesys is being proactive.

They're offering a free lung cancer screening this Saturday, November 23rd from 10 AM til 2 PM. The requirements are as follows:

  • Be between the ages of 55 - 77
  • Currently a smoker or have quit within the past 15 years
  • Have, at minimum, a 30-plus pack-year smoking history

There's no cost or early registration required.

Lung cancer is the number one cause of death for adults over the age of 55, more than colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. If you'd like more information, call Ascension Genesys at (810) 715-0803, ext. 1356.

I smoked for 20 years and I think that this is a great idea. Just wish I was 55 so I could get the screening!
