Bryant Gumbel Has Lung Cancer

Sadly, Bryant Gumbel, host of HBO Real Sports and former Today Show anchor, has announced that he's being treated for lung cancer. According to the CDC, more people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer.

Visit our site for a list of charities working to find a cure for and generate awareness about lung cancer.

Since smoking is a major risk factor, you may also want to support a charity, like Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids or Action on Smoking and Health , that is working to limit the number of people who smoke.
