NEW YORK--Cancer Care, Inc. is offering a new booket, Learning About
Lung Cancer: It Helps to Understand, that attempts to close the "information
gap" with regard to how lung cancer is diagnosed and treated, as well
as provide help and tips on how to cope with medical and nonmedical issues
faced by lung cancer patients.
"For many years, people wouldn't even say they had cancer,"
says Diane Blum, executive director of Cancer Care, Inc. "Today, at
last, we can talk about it openly, but lung cancer patients are still stigmatized--
people assume they are all smokers, and believe it is the patients' fault
that they developed cancer."
To receive a free copy of the 40-page booket, which was published through
an educational grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb Oncology, contact a local
Bristol-Myers Squibb Oncology sales representative or call the national
toll-free Cancer Care Counseling Line at 1-800-813-HOPE (1-800-813-4673).
