- Katherine Donaldson, Executive Director at Coalition For A Tobacco Free Arkansas (CTFA) for World No Tobacco Day’s No Menthol Sunday. No Menthol Sunday is an extension of World No Tobacco Day, which is May 31st. CTFA is working with the National African-American Tobacco Prevention Network (NAAPTN). The goal of this National effort is to encourage you to say “No” to the sale of mentholated and candy-flavored tobacco products. Adding menthol to cigarettes makes smoking easier to start and harder to quit. According to NAAPTN, by adding menthol flavoring, tobacco companies have successfully recruited both youth and marginalizes populations. Studies show that placing a ban on menthol may save lives and prevent 9 million people from starting to smoke. For more information on how you can participate in No Menthol Sunday, call 501-687-0345 or visit www.ARfreshair.com.

Miriam Karanja and Kevin Holmes with the Arkansas Cancer Coalition. May is Melanoma and Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that comes from the cells in the skin that produce pigment called melanocytes. It is potentially a deadly skin cancer, killing more young women than any other cancer. One in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer. One person dies every hour from skin cancer in the USA. More than 1 million people will be diagnosed each year.
Colorectal cancer is cancer that occurs in the colon or rectum. Sometimes it's called colon cancer, for short. The colon is the large intestine or large bowel. The rectum is the passageway that connects the colon to the anus. Men in general are more likely to develop colon cancer, or at later stages. Some factors that may contribute to an increase risk are alcohol consumption, tobacco use, overweight and obesity, and more.
Breast cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it's called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women.
