Lung Cancer Awareness Month

As we embrace the brisk winds and changing leaves of November, it’s essential to remember that it’s not just the season that’s shifting. This month, we also mark Lung Cancer Awareness Month, a time to focus on raising awareness about the most common cancer worldwide, lung cancer. In the spirit of unity and education, let’s come together to understand the significance of this observance and what we can do to make a difference.

The Silent Threat:

Lung cancer often lurks in the shadows, gaining momentum before it’s detected. It’s the leading cause of cancer-related deaths globally, and the symptoms are often silent until the disease has reached advanced stages. This makes early detection and prevention all the more critical.

Taking Action:

This Lung Cancer Awareness Month, there are several ways you can make a difference. First and foremost, educate yourself and others about the risk factors, symptoms, and importance of early detection. Encourage your loved ones, especially those who smoke or have a history of smoking, to get regular screenings.

Supporting organizations like the American Lung Association, the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, or your local cancer charities can also make a significant impact. They use donations to fund research, provide resources for patients and their families, and advocate for lung cancer awareness.

Lung Cancer Awareness Month is a time for unity and knowledge, a moment to honor those who have been affected by this devastating disease. By taking simple steps to educate ourselves and support the cause, we can work towards a world where lung cancer is no longer the silent threat it is today. Let’s unite in the fight against lung cancer, because awareness is the first step toward prevention and, ultimately, a cure.

"OMG!! This nursing home is amazing especially this one worker. Her name is Michelle. When I tell you she's so great at what she does, I mean she's great. I visit my aunt quite frequently who resides on the 7th floor. Prior to her being assigned on that floor; there were a lot of unsanitary conditions especially the stench and filth. All of a sudden I notice this girl (Michelle) has been working on the floor and all of those unsanitary conditions including the stench left. I never seen a person that take so much pride and dignity in cleaning all of those rooms and the whole floor from top to bottom. This floor is like a brand new floor that I never seen. I'm going to pay her a visit the next time I see my aunt and make her an offer at my firm as a executive assistant!"

I reccomend this facility who has concers about their love ones or family membets who are not satisfied with the other facility to request for a transfer in this facility"

"This is a great place for rehabilitation... my father was at split rock on Baychester ave. In bronx and would go back and forth to hospital every 3 or 4 days because of carelessness with the staff... we said enough was enough when my father flatlined .WAYNE REHABILITATION has saved my fathers life. They are very good at diagnosing, rehabilitation and nutrition. Everyone there looks like they love their job. Never a problem with anyone any my father loves it there. He has recovered nicely and will be coming home soon. I highly recommend WAYNE REHABILITATION AND NURSING to everyone."

"I had a knee replacement and went to Wayne Center through a referral from a friend. I immediately noticed the ambiance of a modern facility to be very appealing clean well lit and organized. An administrative staff visited my room and explained their role and expectations. Nurses were very attentive and especially to the elderly and always smiling. Except for breakfast the food was very good quality and taste. Rehab staff was great I enjoyed working with Rosalyn she really made me work. Only drawback in rehab was they need another machine for legs. Staff was A+ from nurses, administration and maintenance-"noticed when their was a spill on the floor they would quickly clean up".
I would definitely refer anyone who is thinking of sending their parent, grandparent or loved one."
