American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE unites women to stand together against lung cancer and for lung health.

Only a force of many can take on lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women in the United States. Consider these eye-opening facts:

  • Every five minutes, a woman in the U.S. is told she has lung cancer.
  • In the last 41 years, the rate of new lung cancer cases has fallen 35% among men while increasing 87 percent among women.
  • Only 3 percent of women list lung cancer as a top-of-mind health concern.

Anyone can get lung cancer.

It's a big problem—so we have big goals.

We work to change people's minds about what it means to have lung cancer—so that everyone understands their risks. We raise our voices for innovations in research that will lead to earlier detection and more personalized treatments—so that everyone has a fighting chance.

We stand together against lung cancer and for lung health. We stand together as one LUNG FORCE.

Watch our vision video to hear one woman's inspiring story and learn about how LUNG FORCE is bringing women together to make lung cancer history.

For our breath, for our lives.
