Lung cancer has been in the shadows for far too long.
Together, we need to educate the nation about the fact that anyone can get lung cancer. To do this, we need your voice to wake America up to the lung cancer crisis.
Please share how you have been impacted by lung cancer. Your story will be accessible on our website, and potentially featured in LUNG FORCE social media posts and newsletters, to help build a community of awareness, provide hope to others who have been impacted by lung cancer and inspire people everywhere to get involved.
Step 1: Enter Your Personal Information
Submitting your story is an easy, two-step process. Start by taking a minute to provide your name, email address and zip code.
If you already have a Lung.org account, login using your username and password.
Step 2: Tell Us Your Story
Share how lung disease has impacted your life. You can also attach an image to your story. Be sure to let us know which lung disease your story is about.
