Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer in the U.S.
More than a quarter million Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer in 2020 alone, and 4 out of 5 will ultimately die from the disease. An additional 36 million Americans are living with chronic lung disease.
As we all know, these diseases also put our loved ones at greater risk of developing more serious complications from other illnesses, like COVID-19.
I am supporting the LUNG FORCE Run/Walk Pittsburgh to make a difference in the lives of people impacted by lung cancer and lung disease. Are you interested in being a part of the FORCE to create a world free of lung disease? Our collective efforts will help raise awareness and funds to protect lung health for all.
