LCP Assistant Director, LSU School of Public Health Assistant Professor
I lost my father to lung cancer last year. He was 83 when he was diagnosed with late-stage disease, and died three weeks later. Although he lived past the average age for men in the United States, he likely would have had more years to spend time with his children, grandchildren, and friends if he hadn’t smoked cigarettes.
Louisiana Cancer Prevention & Control Programs Communications Manager
Louisiana has the second highest breast cancer death rate in the country. We say this over and over again at Louisiana Cancer Prevention (LCP). And we say it over and over again because it doesn’t need to be this way.
