If this trend continues, our communities will be at risk of an outbreak of serious diseases such as measles, whooping cough and more. Here’s what some local health organizations are doing to help our communities reach the desired benchmarks.

You Can Help Purchase a Breakthrough Lung Cancer Detection System

Your donations can help us purchase some exciting equipment that will mark a new era in diagnosing and treating lung cancer. A breakthrough lung navigation system will enable our doctors to locate and diagnose lung cancer earlier and at a more treatable stage of the disease.

Dr. Sequeira“This system helps us visualize more of the bronchial tree and get better tissue sampling to diagnose and stage lung cancers earlier,” said Melwyn Sequeira, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.R.C.S., Oncology Service Line Chief. “The ability to immediately diagnose when the tumor is first discovered, no matter its size or location, enables us to capture lung cancer in Stage I/II vs. Stage III/IV, giving our patients more treatment options.”
