Mom was the inspiration behind the creation of SMAC! Sock Monkeys Against Cancer. We chronicled her battle with #lungcancer. No she never smoked. We worked to help educate others that ANYONE can get lung cancer. She lost her battle December 2012. Her legacy lives on in SMAC! She found great comfort in the SMAC! Monkeys and wanted others with/impacted by cancer to have the same experience. Give a SMAC! Monkey: www.smacancer.com. #cancer#SMACancer#cancercomfort
Let's SMAC! Lung Cancer. Phoenix, the lung cancer SMAC! monkey. In addition to the awesome illustrations of NoMo the SMAC! monkey, the amazing Ann Troe, has now created these sassy illustrations of Phoenix. Love him...and love her work. Will be putting all illustrations on merchandise soon to help pay for launch of SMAC! monkey line. Yay. Like Anne's work? Of course you do. You can find her here: anngraphics.com/
There is good news in the field of lung cancer. New guidelines, recently published in the Journal of National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommend that certain high-risk groups can benefit from lung cancer screening with low-dose Computed Tomography (CT) scan. A CT scan can detect lung cancer nodules in stage IA when the cure rate can be as high as 90 percent or more. Dr. Rudy P. Lackner, pictured here, authored the blog posting.
