LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day 2017

LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day 2017

LUNG FORCE is a movement uniting the nation in the fight against lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women and men.

During our second annual LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day on April 5, lung cancer advocates from all 50 states joined together to urge senators and representatives in Washington, D.C. to advocate for quality, affordable healthcare and increased funding for lung cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Ready to lend your voice to the cause? You can help by participating in the following ways:

  1. Call Your Members of Congress

    Using the Lung Action tool, find phone numbers for your Senators and Representative.

    Call your representatives to ask them to support increased federal lung cancer research funding, and tell them why healthcare coverage matters to you.

  2. Send an Email to Your Members of Congress

    Send an email to your two Senators and one Representative in Washington, D.C., and tell them that we need Congress to invest in research funding, and work to ensure quality, affordable healthcare, especially for people with lung cancer and lung disease. We've drafted an email—all you need to do is fill out your information and click 'send'!

  3. Tweet About it

    Connect with your Senators and Representative using the suggested Tweets below. Make sure to personalize it with their Twitter handle. (Find their Twitter handles online and click the '+' to get their Twitter handle.):
