This event is designed to raise awareness about the disproportionate incidence of lung disease among women and to raise much needed funds for lung health research in Kentucky.  
  • Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer of women in America, killing more women than breast, ovarian, and cervical cancer combined
  • Deaths from lung cancer among women have risen 150% in the last 20 years while deaths among men are decreasing
  • More women die from COPD (Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema) than men
  • Women are 37% more likely to have COPD than men
  • Sixty-five percent of asthma deaths occur in women
Women are not statistics.  They are our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our coworkers, and friends.  They nurture and challenge those that they love and advocate within the community to protect those that they love.  The American Lung Association knows how important women are to our society.  This inspirational luncheon is our way of saying that Women are the Breath of Life.
