Help Us Fight Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the U.S. It is time to change this statistic by taking action. You can make a difference by contacting your elected officials in Congress and urging them to support more research for and efforts to protect people from lung cancer. Social media is a critically important tool for raising greater awareness of lung cancer and encouraging loved ones and acquaintances to join you and take action.

Join the Movement

Join LUNG FORCE, the movement to defeat lung cancer. Through events all over the country and our LUNG FORCE Heroes program, you can meet others with lung cancer and join the fight.


The American Lung Association advocates for much-needed resources for the fight against lung cancer at federal, state and local levels.

One pressing issue in lung cancer is the need for more research. Please send a letter to your elected officials highlighting your personal story and urging Congress to increase funding for lung cancer research.
