Lublins Fight Back
The statistic is so staggering, and sobering, it’s almost impossible to believe. According to the U.S. Department of Defense, 411,000 Americans were killed during World War II, a devastating cost of joining the effort to defeat global powers on two fronts from the end of 1941 to 1945.
Yet during 2014 alone, 625,000 Americans died of some form of cancer. It’s something that Avon resident Richard Lublin finds appalling. “Cancer is killing more people in one year than we lost in three years of war,” he said. He cites another statistic to drive home the point.
