About Us

Let your voice be heard

Citizens For Radioactive Radon Reduction is a 501 c3 nonprofit organization with a purpose to assist, encourage, and prepare advocates in making a difference with awareness, education and action against radioactive radon gas exposure. We hope to effectively educate the public and private sectors about the real danger of living, working, or attending school in environments with elevated levels of radon gas.

The oncologist said, “radon is a known cause of lung cancer” when my husband, Joe, was diagnosed with lung cancer. A radon test revealed we had been living with over 4 times the EPA action level of this demon for 18 years and didn’t know it. We, like millions of others, didn’t know that radon exposure could cause lung cancer; and we didn’t know this silent killer was living with us. Test your home for radioactive radon gas; and if the level is high, get it fixed, and become an advocate for radon reduction. You will be taking a preventive and proactive action in helping to protect those that you love.

High levels of radioactive radon gas can be in any type of home, old, new, brick, frame, basement, crawl space or slab on grade—that the only way to know if elevated levels exists is to test—that it can be reduced with a certified or licensed professional. Because of Joe’s life and death, laws have been passed which are helping to save lives in my state–the Illinois Radon Awareness Act.

Please join our crusade to save lives with radon reduction advocacy. If you wish to become a member, simply go to http://citizensforradioactiveradonreduction.org/become-a-member and give us permission to put your name in as a member.
