Eva-Marie gets screened every year
Eva-Marie smoked for over 15 years. Seeing lung cancer take both her mother and uncle motivated her to quit and get the low-dose CT scan every year. “It’s like getting a mammogram. It’s that important to me. The more you know, the easier it is to take care of it.”
