From Your Local Lung Association
Lung cancer is an urgent health crisis in America, killing more people than any other cancer. Now in its third year, LUNG FORCE is making Lung Cancer a national priority and is dedicated to reducing lung cancer’s terrible toll.
In fiscal year 2016 the American Lung Association of the Midland States brought awareness to the number one cancer killer of women by turning our communities turquoise in honor of National Women’s Lung Health Week. During the third annual Turquoise Takeover, social media, news stations, newspapers, buildings and landmarks all turned turquoise to spread awareness of this important cause.
LUNG FORCE Walks in Cincinnati, OH; Cleveland, OH; Columbus, OH; Detroit, MI; Louisville, KY; and Nashville, TN brought together those fighting for lung health and raised critical funds for research, advocacy and education.
LUNG FORCE Expo in Lexington, KY offered education and support for lung disease patients, caregivers and healthcare providers. We look forward to expanding this important education into Nashville, TN in fiscal year 2017.
We 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.
