THERE'S A HIDDEN KILLER AMONG US

Join the fight to bring lung cancer to justice

Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women. And since the mid-1970s, lung cancer diagnoses among women have been on the rise.

It's a hidden issue. It's a women's issue. And too few live to tell about it.

LUNG FORCE is a nationwide initiative led by the American Lung Association to unite women to stand together against lung cancer. Join us to Lock Up Lung Cancer for good.
