LUNG FORCE, led by the American Lung Association, will unite women to stand together against lung cancer and for lung health.
Only a force of many can take on lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women in the United States. Consider these eye-opening facts:
- Every five minutes, a woman in the U.S. is told she has lung cancer.
- The lung cancer death rate in women has more than doubled over the past 35 years.
- Anyone can get lung cancer.
It’s a big problem—so we have big goals.
We work to change people’s minds about what it means to have lung cancer—so that everyone understands their risks.
We raise our voices for innovations in research that will lead to earlier detection and more personalized treatments—so that everyone has a fighting chance.
And we work to advance lung health—a life free of lung disease—for everyone who suffers from asthma, COPD and other lung diseases, or has someone in their life who does.
We stand together against lung cancer and for lung health. We stand together as one LUNG FORCE—for our breath, for our lives.
