Since 1904, the American Lung Association® has been preventing lung disease and improving the quality of life through research, education and advocacy.  To continue our fight, we need your support. More than 35 million Americans suffer from lung disease. A disease that is responsible for one in six deaths and ranks as America's #3 killer.  The statistics are staggering:

  • Asthma affects more than 22 million Americans and nearly 4,000 lives are cut short by this disease each year 
  • Tobacco-related diseases kill 438,000 Americans every year
  • Every day nearly 4,000 children under 18 start smoking
  • Lung cancer caused over 160,000 deaths in 2007 alone, and over 213,380 new cases were diagnosed
  • Six out of 10 lung cancer patients die within one year of diagnosis
  • Emphysema and chronic bronchitis, also known as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in America.
