►Follow Gaia's ToS
►Do not quote any large blocks of text, such as any of the posts on the front page of the main thread or a team's thread.
►Please read the FAQs before asking a question. That way we can be sure that we have plenty of time to answer any unusual or specific questions, instead of answering the same common ones over and over.
►Contacting Blaize/crew: We are likely to be very busy around this time. Not only do we have to organize many things here at once, virtually all of TDM's staff is in college or high school. For us, April not only means TDM, it means term papers and exams. Questions and Yellow Wall entries will have priority over any art or banners you send, or affiliate/Turn TDM requests. Please be patient with us.
►Be supportive of one another! Try to get along.
►And most importantly, strive for positivity. I encourage you to share your stories and feelings concerning cancer, cancer awareness, and the like, but this will not be a pity-party. Many people may be going through cancer themselves or seeing someone they love dealing with it. We’re here to hope for the best.

.: The above rules are absolute for everyone in the TDM, but here I have a few more.
.: Use English grammar to the best of your ability. No L337, please.
.: We DO NOT discriminate. You don't have to agree to tolerate.
.: Do not swear. I am a lady and DO NOT tolerate foul language, especially towards others.
.: Do not PM me unless I specifically say to. If it is not specified, then just post.

"Lung cancer is cancer that starts in the lungs.

The lungs are located in the chest. When you breathe, air goes through your nose, down your windpipe (trachea), and into the lungs, where it spreads through tubes called bronchi. Most lung cancer begins in the cells that line these tubes.

There are two main types of lung cancer:
.: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer.
.: Small cell lung cancer makes up about 20% of all lung cancer cases.

If the lung cancer is made up of both types, it is called mixed small cell/large cell cancer. If the cancer started somewhere else in the body and spread to the lungs, it is called metastatic cancer to the lung.

Lung cancer is the deadliest type of cancer for both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer is more common in older adults. It is rare in people under age 45.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. The more cigarettes you smoke per day and the earlier you started smoking, the greater your risk for lung cancer. There is no evidence that smoking low-tar cigarettes lowers the risk. However, lung cancer has occurred in people who have never smoked.

Secondhand smoke (breathing the smoke of others) increases your risk for lung cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 3,000 nonsmoking adults will die each year from lung cancer related to breathing secondhand smoke."


................................___________________________................................


For those of you who have lost or have a loved one battling this, or any other type of cancer, post their story, picture, name, whatever you feel is appropriate on the Yellow Wall, the guild-wide memorial.

A big part of TDM is wearing daffodils. If you are in need of a bouquet, please let me know so I can get you one. And since it is difficult to find transparent items, we encourage you to wear white in honor of Team Lung this month. If you need help obtaining white clothing, once again please let me know.

Your Captain ~Please take care of me!

.: For those of you that don't know me, I am Selente. You may call me Selente or Lenty. I am a pretty normal person, I work nonstop and am currently getting back into school as a Business Major after taking some time off. I start this summer (yay)! I like pink, red, dolls, and drawing. As a forewarning, I am very forgetful (ha ha). Also, I'm a brony!
.: This is my 4th year in this group, and I don't know if I've ever said why I joined Team Lung. My grandfather died from mesothelioma due to asbestos poisoning when I was 7. Later, after years of smoking, my aunt when I was 12. I was close with both of them, hence my devotion to Team Lung.



Your Team ~May we all work together!

.: GuardFrog
.: September Wolf
.: DaynaDanish
.: Eggfish
.: Puddingcow

*Just post saying you'd like to join. Everyone and anyone is welcome!

Submit by posting a Tektek wearing our team colours of white/clear. You may use other colours, but I do ask that you 1) try to stick with white/clear as the majority, and 2) include flowers on your avatar (they don't have the right daffodils on tektek, so just flowers~). Everything else is up to your imaginations.

Winners will be announced April 25th!

-Including daffodils is a plus, but not required.
-Try to stick with white/clear as the majority colour-scheme for Team Lung.
