FNB helping Warner Hospital fight lung cancer

Courtesy of Warner Hospital & Health Services Warner Hospital and Health Services thanked First National Bank and Trust for its $2,500 donation to assist in the hospital’s efforts to reduce lung cancer. The funds will be made available to the community for folks without insurance or other means to participate in the smoking cessation classes, which is the first step on the way to reducing lung cancer. DeWitt County is ranked No. 2 in the state for lung cancer deaths. Warner Hospital, with the help of First National Bank and Trust’s donation, is fighting back with lung cancer prevention initiatives. Starting January 2019, Warner will offer a “Freedom from Smoking” class. The class is an eight-week course offered through the American Lung Association. For Warner’s Family Medicine patients, there is a lung cancer screening program, if they qualify. Participants must be age 50 or over, have a 20-30 or more pack per year history of smoking, current smoker or have quit within the past 15 years, and have additional lung cancer risk factors. For more information on these great programs, call 217-937-5284 or email us at [email protected]
