My name is Jonathon and I am with Our organization is an awareness group that aims to educate the public about prescription/OTC drugs, medical devices, and general health issues.

I noticed you shared some helpful resources here I was wondering if you were still updating your resources page? We have a guide that discusses the causes of lung cancer, symptoms of lung cancer, stages of lung cancer, and common risk factors; such as smoking, asbestos exposure, and in some cases air pollution.

If you are interested you are more than welcome to list any of the resources that you find useful.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you,
