Today, November 19th is the 45th annual Great American Smokeout - an opportunity to commit to a smoke- and tobacco-free life – not just for a day, but year-round. You can start creating your quit plan today by visiting cancer.org/smokeout. Quitting may not be easy, but you can do it with the right support, and the American Cancer Society can help!

The 45th annual Great American Smokeout® (GASO) will be celebrated on Thursday, November 19, 2020.
Encourage someone you know to make a plan to quit and initiate a smoking cessation plan during the Great American Smokeout® event, November 19, 2020.
There is no better time to quit, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDC lists smoking as one of the conditions that might put a person at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Caregivers play such an important role in a cancer patient's journey.
This week - I am asking all my cancer survivor friends (yes, even those with skin cancer) to post a picture of their caregivers and thank them and how they helped you and use #ThankACaregiver
I can't wait to see FB flooded next week with positivity and love as we thank our caregivers!!!

COVID has severely impacted our already vulnerable population and we need YOU now to help us raise awareness and funds.

87% reported some impact on their care due to the virus, up from 51% in April’s survey.

46% reported a notable impact on their financial situation that affects their ability to pay for care; 23% are worried about losing health insurance.

79% in active treatment reported a delay in their care.

“So I figured it was time to update my profile photos to reflect who I am now. The long hair is gone. I’m not who I was before this, and I have no desire to go back. I love this photo of me. It reminds me of where I’ve been as it was taken not long after my second round of chemo. My hair was falling out. I haven’t posted this yet because soon after it was taken I had my third round of chemo and everything felt incredibly hard. My insides, my emotional health, was not reflective of how I look in this photo...because I think I look beautiful here. But now, even with my hair just growing back, and my missing eyelashes and my sparse eyebrows...I feel beautiful again. It’s not to do with how I look. It’s because I f-ing made it through treatment. I’m here! My emotional well being is supported and I feel strong. Because of this experience I’ve also quit smoking...haha...I know...I’m the yogi. More on that later. For now, I am so happy to be free from that addiction! I’m sober af. I don’t smoke. I’m so close to being done treatment. I’m alive. I’m beautiful. Here’s to 2020. Yes!!” -Joy Dorsey

No matter where you are in your cancer journey, the #AmericanCancerSociety is here to help. If you need support, call our 24/7/365 hotline at 1-800-227-2345.
