Tis the season for parties, celebrations, get togethers...food is everywhere all the time this time of year, and it isn't always the healthy stuff.

Tune in TONIGHT to 'Fighting Lung Cancer: A Woman's Inspiration'

Tune in TONIGHT to 'Fighting Lung Cancer: A Woman's Inspiration'

Increasingly, more and more people who’ve never smoked a day in their life are being diagnosed with lung cancer. And while lung cancer causes more deaths annually than any other form of cancer, if caught early, recovery is at its best.

News 10 and Mercy Cancer Institute of Greater Sacramento invite you to tune in to a special half-hour segment “Fighting Lung Cancer: A Woman’s Inspiration” Thursday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m.

You will be introduced to local women, all non-smokers, who were diagnosed with lung cancer incidentally, and learn about the movement that seeks to screen and catch lung cancer early—for the best possible treatment outcomes.

Again, this show airs Thursday, November 29, at 7:30pm on News10.  You won't want to miss it!

Negative self-talk is something most of us do without even thinking about it. Somewhere along the line, many of us become our own worst critics, far harder on ourselves than we would ever be of others.

There is an old saying: you teach others how to treat you. But really, when you say negative things to yourself about yourself, aren't you teaching yourself how to treat you?
