What’s Happening Today – Oct. 26, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Do you have lungs? Of course you do. That means you could get lung cancer. Not all people who get lung cancer are, or have been, smokers. Lung cancer survivor, Deena Cook, joins us today to share her story. Deena smoked 30 years ago, and in 2012, she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She’s now trying to prevent people from asking “Did you smoke?” once they find out someone has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Deena says every lung cancer patient deserves compassion, and when someone asks them if they smoke, it immediately places blame on that patient.
Deena, along with Peninsula Regional Medical Center‘s Lung Cancer Program Coordinator, Lauren Moore, tell us about an event that brings awareness to lung cancer, and the importance of getting screened. The event is Shine a Light on Lung Cancer. Here are the details:
6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury
6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute, Ocean Pines
Attendees can look forward to guest speakers, information on trials and screenings, door prizes and much more.
As the temperatures drop, our time spent indoors increases. For kids, that means being in close proximity to germs that cause colds and other ailments. One of the best defenses against those germs is making sure your child is eating well, getting enough sleep, and taking their daily vitamins. The team at Riverside and Milford Street Pharmacies in Salisbury, are taking care of the vitamin part with a program that provides free multivitamins to children in the community. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield tells us more about the free vitamin program.
Reading is essential to just about every job. It might be surprising, though, that only one in six American adults reads at, or below, a third grade level. This fact fuels the passion behind Carole Bailey, who is board member with Literacy Delaware. Carole shares details about Literacy Delaware’s mission, which is to help adult learners realize their potential though basic reading classes, English language instruction and one-on-one tutoring. The program is relatively new in Sussex County, and Carole encourages viewers to learn more about the program at their upcoming event Scrabble at the Beach. The event takes place at the Peninsula Clubhouse in Millsboro on November 7th from 4-7 p.m.
Just a few months ago, we were excited to introduce our WBOC drone team and Skycam 16. We understand how state-of-the-art technology can benefit our viewers. Now, a few police departments are using that same technology to fight crime. WBOC’s Brooke Reese joins us to talk about how officials are able to use drones to fight crime all over the country, and here on Delmarva. She also touches on some concepts associated with drones, such as privacy and its impact on taxpayers. Viewers can learn more by watching Brooke’s news story about these drones tonight, on WBOC News at 6.
