Today we begin Cancer Awareness Week with Lung Cancer Awareness. Thank you to all the Griffins who helped by donating today. Lung cancer starts when cells of the lung become abnormal and begin to grow out of control. As more cancer cells develop, they can form into a tumor and spread to other areas of the body. The most common cause for lung cancer is smoking which fills the lungs with carcinogens. The 5 year survival rate is considerably lower than many other cancers at only 17.7%. We will be wearing the color white to support research that will hopefully lea to someday cure this disease. Thank you for your support. Tomorrow we support Lymphoma Awareness by wearing Red.
Congratulations to the cast & crew of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten on a successful run this past weekend. The cast will head out this week for performances at eight area elementary schools.
