FREE RADON TEST KITS
Dusty Donaldson, founder of the Dusty Joy Foundation (dustyjoy.org) will be distributing free radon test kits at Madison, Mayodan, and Stoneville in March. Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive, invisible, odorless gas. Breathing air that contains radon causes lung cancer. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in people who never smoked. Radon testing is inexpensive and easy. If a problem is detected, relatively inexpensive options are available to remove the threat of radon from the home. Kits will be given on a first come first serve basis.
