OPI "Breathe Life" Limited Edition Polish Giveaway

This particular giveaway is near and dear to my heart. OPI has partnered with the Lung Cancer Foundation of America to "Nail the Message" and raise awareness and promote early detection of lung cancer. As someone who had a loved suffer with lung cancer, this matters to me. This isn't a "free sample" that I received from OPI. I purchased more than one of these because OPI has contributed a sizeable donation to LCFA and hopes to use this campaign to spread the word and get salons to do "Salon Days" where they give a percentage of the price for their services back to LCFA. Some are already doing this, which is fabulous!

According to the LCFA, “Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women. It kills more than the 6 next largest cancer killers combined."

With figures like that, it IS time to raise awareness and protect our health!


So...to show my support for OPI & LCFA's Awareness Campaign, I am giving away a brand new bottle of this fabulous Limited Edition spring color "Breathe Life" to one lucky winner!

Lung cancer is the nation's leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women. --- I didn't know that.

I haven't been touched by lung cancer, but I have via other cancers. I don't smoke which is how I help my lungs!

My dad actually has stage 4 lung cancer. It is very hard to detect it early. I learned that Every 2 1/2 minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with lung cancer and every 3 minutes someone in the United States will die from lung cancer. amsbolda@hotmail.com

I exercise regularly, eat healthy and avoid second hand smoke!

I learned that:

In 2008 it is projected lung cancer will kill three times as many men as prostate cancer and twice as many women as breast cancer.

Beth said...

One in 13 men and one in 16 women will develop lung cancer in their lifetime. This includes smokers and non-smokers.

A good friend of ours passed from lung cancer 3 years ago. Never smoked a day in her life and was a health nut too. So lung cancer doesn't discriminate.

this past November, my grandpa died of lung cancer. They didn't catch it until it had spread to his bones and brain!! I sure miss him. Thousands of dollars have been donated in his name to support this great cause. Thank you for your support. I'd be honored to win.

I didn't know that In 2008 Lung Cancer claimed more lives than breast, prostate, colon, liver, kidney and melanoma cancers - COMBINED.

Nurse Mommy said...

its the nations leading cancer death. Yes Lung cancer is touching me right now. My very dear uncle is dying from lung cancer that has spread to every organ. This Saturday we are through him a 54th birthday party that we ALL know will be his LAST :( I am currently trying to QUIT smoking......which as we all know (esp me being a nurse) is the #1 cause of lung cancer.

stormvikki said...

I was amazed at how high the cancer rate is for lung cancer. Scary for nonsmokers.

Stefanie Hartman said...

I was surprised to learn that lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths for both me and women. My grandpa and all of his brothers died of lung cancer. To stay healthy, my family, doesn't smoke and we stay away from second hand smoke. We are lucky that in NY there's no smoking in all public places.

It saddens me that lung cancer is underfunded and under-researched. My aunt died approximately two years ago from lung cancer. I personally do not smoke nor do I allow my children to be near ANY second hand smoke.

The survival rate for lung cancer is 49% for cases detected when the disease is still localized; however, only 16% of lung cancers are diagnosed at this early stage.

By the time my brother in law's lung cancer was detected, he was already at stage 4. Less than four months later, the lung cancer killed him. Please, don't smoke or quit if you already do. And don't wait to see a doctor if you think there's a problem. I still can't believe he's gone.

My husband's best friend died of lung cancer, at the age of 32, when our newborn son was 9 days old. Our friend Josh never smoked a day in his life, and left behind a 12-year-old daughter (she is now 16). We have been involved in trying to find the environmental factors that may have led to his cancer. :(

Cancer sucks. Oh and I am totally on your Facebook group girl.

One in 16 women (smokers and non-smokers) will develop lung cancer. I've never been touched by lung cancer, but a good amount of people I know do smoke. I remember reading a statistic that one breath of secondhand smoke decreases four minutes of your life, so I try to stay healthy by eating healthy, especially vegetables that fight carcinogens.

That lung cancer kills more people every year than the 'big' ones combined. That's startling. My life hasn't been touched by lung cancer yet. I'm so sorry to those it has. :(

Every 2 1/2 minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with lung cancer.

My FIL died of lung cancer in November 2000. My youngest daughter never got to meet him and my oldest was only an infant at the time.

We try to encourage others around us to stop smoking.

Forgot my fact!

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Defense earmarked no money for lung cancer research in 2007.

That's really really sad. :(

I can't believe that lung cancer is so common! According to the site, every 3 minutes, one person actually dies from lungs cancer. That's pretty severe...

No one around me has experienced lung cancer, but there are some with asthma. I don't smoke and won't in the future because I hate the smell.

In 2008 it is projected lung cancer will kill three times as many men as prostate cancer and twice as many women as breast cancer---so scary and also sad that you don't hear about lung cancer as much as other cancers.

I have been affected. My grandpa was diagnosed last September. He had been a smoker most of his life. He noticed a cough and blamed it on allergies...finally went to the dr and has very advanced lung cancer. He is still alive and remains so positive. I admire him for his strength!

I quit smoking almost 3 years ago cold turkey. I exercise, eat plenty of fruits and veggies and avoid second hand smoke for me and my family as much as possible.

GREAT giveaway and thank you for bringing awareness!

I learned that 60% of new lung cancer diagnoses will be in non-smokers.

Amy said...

I was very shocked to read that 450 people die a day (19 an hour) from lung cancer. I haven't been touched by lung cancer. To stay healthy, I don't smoke and I try to exercise.

LUNG CANCER IS…UNDER FUNDED, UNDER RESEARCHED, UNDER SUPPORTED! We need to do something now!

My dad died from lung cancer on 3/10/07, he would have been 69 yrs. old on 5/21.

I've recently had spinal surgery, but I'm working my way back up to walking every day to stay healthy and keep my lungs strong.

Kendra said...

"It is estimated that 60% of new lung cancer diagnoses will be in non-smokers - a combination of 45-50% former smokers (many who quit 10, 20, even 30 years prior to the onset of lung cancer) and approximately 15% of people who have never smoked."

I had no idea that it was so high for this group.

I haven't been touched by lung cancer, but have by others.

I was around second hand smoke my whole young life, but I avoid it at all costs now. Hoping that's enough to keep me and my children healthy.

19 people die from lung cancer per hour!I lost a beloved uncle from lung cancer a few years ago; still difficult for me to discuss it. I've smoked for 42 years and am trying desperately to stop. Wish me luck!
