We are facing a crisis in women’s health. Every 8 minutes, a woman in the United States dies of lung cancer. Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women in the United States – and it has been since 1987. On average, less than half of all women diagnosed with lung cancer will be alive one year after diagnosis.
Anyone can get lung cancer. But due to a lack of patient awareness, a lack of understanding among primary care physicians and an often debilitating social stigma, lung cancer in women is underdiagnosed and frequently untreated. We need everyone to take notice and take action.
LUNG FORCE is a national movement led by the American Lung Association to unite women in the fight against lung cancer and for lung health. A strong, healthy breath is critical to ensure women can speak out and raise their voices. LUNG FORCE combines the power of celebrities and influencers with the strength of families, friends and communities to stand together with the collective voice and determination needed to make lung cancer history.
