Alliance Offers Help To Smokers

The amount of money the state spends on cigarettes store control is much in the news. New York has been spending 4 percent of cigarettes online revenues on smoking cigarettes cessation.

Cigarette smoking cigarettes is addictive and efforts to curb it should be made. However, we should think about funding the continuum of need. Tobacco control is first; then comes early screening for lung cancer and treatment.

We need to screen those who are former smokers and may not know they are at risk for lung cancer. Current smokers are at high risk.

Science proves early screening saves lives and that when someone is screened for lung cancer and has a teachable moment with his or her doctor, the likelihood of him or her quitting is higher than with standard quit lines or programs.

The Lung Cancer Alliance offers free patient support services for lung cancer patients and their families.
