Over the last few years, I've had numerous discussions with smokers, former smokers, their loved ones and healthcare providers about the risk factors for lung cancer and the benefit of early detection. I hope sharing my knowledge and many of your stories will help make an impact on this deadly disease.

Another Great Musician Lost to Lung Cancer | Donna Summer


donna summer lung cancerWe’ve lost many great musical talents to lung cancer, and the newest is no different. According to Huffington Post, Donna Summer, famous disco legend, passed away at age 63, after a battle with lung cancer.

TMZ reported that Summer was private about her illness, and that there may have been a connection between debris from 9/11 and her lung cancer.

The Huffington Post article goes on to say that “there are very few details about Summer's cancer, or if there were any complications that were involved with her death.

The family of the "She Works Hard for the Money" singer issued a statement, AFP reported, which said: ‘While we grieve her passing, we are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy. Words truly can't express how much we appreciate your prayers and love for our family at this sensitive time.’”

Look at the musical talent we’ve lost far too early due to lung cancer: George Harrison, Carl Wilson of the Beach Boys, Nat “King” Cole, Eddie Kendrick of the Temptations, Jimmy Dorsey, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughan, Duke Ellington, Bob Marley, Gerard Smith of TV of the Radio, Sandy West of the Runaways, Doug Fieger of the Knack (of the My Sharona fame) and so many more.

How many more people do we have to lose to this disease before we take a stand? How many more amazing talents need to be taken from us before we really stand up and fight the #1 cancer killer, which takes more lives each year than the next four cancer killers – breast, colon, prostate and pancreatic cancer – combined?
