People who still smoke cigarettes are the targets of this week's Great American Smokeout, the biggest and most successful annual event to get people to kick the habit.
Chuck Reed, a spokesman for the American Cancer Society, says November is National Lung Cancer Awareness Month.
Lung cancer deaths are about equal to the number of deaths from prostate, breast, colon and pancreatic cancers combined. The Smokeout is scheduled for Thursday.
