LCAM 2016 and AZ Webinar

It's Lung Cancer Awareness Month! I know it's not a well known event but I wanted to do my part to remind you that the simplest thing you can do to help is talk about it. Lung cancer has an unshakable stigma. We need to talk about it to change the general public's views of lung cancer and their lack of compassion. I wrote a rant about how invisible lung cancer is and how it's going to be near impossible to change perception of this disease, but there's too much negativity in this world as it is so, despite it being therapeutic for me to write the rant, I omitted it. Happy Lung Cancer Awareness Month! Go for a hike, go for a swim, talk incessantly, use those lungs and appreciate what you have :). 

I hope this isn't too late but AstraZeneca wanted me to invite anyone interested in their webinar. It will happen on November 15 (tomorrow) at two different times. The information is below. My apologies if this reaches you too late.
