A local hospital is trying to help people breathe a little easier by getting them screened for lung cancer. November is Lung Cancer Awareness month and Mercy Health-Saint Ritas is trying to bring attention to lung cancer and how to prevent it. According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer mostly effects older people and is the leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women. In fact, more people die of lung cancer than colon, breast and prostate cancers combined. But the key to surviving is catching it early by getting screened, especially if you are at risk of developing lung cancer.
