Who Will You Quit Smoking For?
Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada (CCCN) and University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) are helping residents of Southern Nevada and visitors from out-of-state quit smoking. Beginning on November 1 – the first day of Lung Cancer Awareness Month – Comprehensive will place eight tobacco drop-off bins on three UNLV campuses. One bin will be placed at the Paradise Campus (851 E. Tropicana Ave., 89119), one at the Shadow Lane Campus (1001 Shadow Lane, 89106), two at the Student Union on the Maryland Campus (4505 S. Maryland Parkway, 89154) and the remaining four will be stationed at Thomas & Mack Center or Sam Boyd Stadium during events.
At the heart of this campaign is an effort to keep Southern Nevadans from ever having to visit one of our clinics. Our friends at UNLV have taken an admirable step to positively impact the thousands of students and visitors that visit their beautiful campus each day. Together, we’re hoping many in our community choose longevity and their livelihood over an addiction.
How You Can Quit Today
Look for our tobacco drop off bins at UNLV, Sam Boyd Stadium or the Thomas & Mack Center starting November 1.
Sign the Pledge Form and Quit!
You can either sign the form on the bins at UNLV, or download one by clicking here: I Quit For Pledge Form.
The “I Quit For” pledge encourages smokers to write the name of a child, parent, friend or loved one to whom they are promising to quit smoking for, taking the pledge to a symbolic level. We invite those participating to snap a photo of themselves with the I Quit For Pledge Form and send it to friends and family members or post on social media with the hashtag #IQuitFor.
