November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

November is lung cancer awareness month. White ribbons apparently represents this awareness. :) Let's all spread this awareness around. It is also pancreatic cancer awareness month (in the US).

Early this morning I got a text message from my girl friend telling me one of our good friend's father passed away yesterday. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 4 months ago. Condolences to him and his family.
