The American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE initiative is uniting the nation to raise our voices for lung health and against lung cancer, during this year’s virtual Turquoise Takeover Celebration (June 14-20).

During this challenging time, it’s important for all those living with lung disease, including COVID-19 and lung cancer to feel hope, optimism, and support. This June we’re standing with lung cancer patients and asking everyone to turn the signature color of LUNG FORCE – turquoise – as a symbol of hope for all those affected by lung disease.

Here’s how you can help:

1. Show Your Turquoise Spirit 

Wear turquoise and show your spirit by posting a selfie on your social media channels, as a symbol of hope for those living with lung disease. You can also add our Turquoise Takeover Facebook frame to your profile. Make sure to ask your friends and family to join with us, too!

2. Donate to Support Lifesaving Research

Although lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among Americans, there has been a dramatic 28 percent improvement in the lung cancer survival rate over the past 10 years. Your donations to lifesaving research make a critical difference in the efforts to defeat this disease. Donate today!

3. Check Out the Lung Health Barometer 

The American Lung Association’s National Lung Health Barometer – a nationwide lung health survey presented by Cancer Treatment Centers of America, helps to find answers on how to advance lung cancer awareness and support by asking Americans what they know about lung cancer. Read more

4. Participate in an Event 

Lung cancer doesn’t stop. Although some of our events are now virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s never been a better time to join us! Be a part of the FORCE to not only help us find a cure for COVID-19 but to also defeat lung cancer and lung disease one step at a time. Find an event near you today!
