Needles. You either love them or hate them.
It’s been quite a few years since I’ve seen a movie without laughter of any sort--not a single one-liner, or even the slightest attempt towards invoking a harmless giggle. “Halloween” and the other horror films pride themselves on the fine art of laughter to relax unsuspecting viewers--all before an axe, knife or chainsaw cut to the morbid plot. Even 1972’s epic backwoods suspense thriller “Deliverance” tossed out some jokes between arrow shots from Burt Reynolds’ recurve bow. I’d probably have to go back to Steven Spielberg’s 1971 road rage, made-for-TV movie titled “Duel” to discover such a humorless film production as “Foxcatcher”.

(BPT) - Did you know that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., and that an estimated 224,210 new cases of lung cancer were expected to be diagnosed in 2014?1 For years, doctors used to treat lung cancer as one disease. Thanks to the discovery of molecular biomarkers, doctors now know that lung cancer is actually made up of many subtypes. This understanding has led to the introduction of molecular testing and development of biomarker-driven therapies. A molecular test can help doctors determine if a biomarker is causing a patient’s tumor to grow and spread, and potentially prescribe a biomarker-driven therapy or make them eligible for a clinical trial. Please see the below infographic to learn more about molecular testing and share the facts! Visit Lung Cancer Profiles for additional resources and join United We Test Quest, a campaign that aims to spread awareness of molecular testing in lung cancer.
